Why should you sign up for this course?

The primary challenge to doing well in criminal law is learning the craft. Learning the sections by heart does not really cut it. Neither does learning thousands of case laws, though, it is definitely helpful to be knowledgeable.

To be a good criminal lawyer, you have to learn a lot of basic groundwork, from drafting good applications to handling the court registries. It takes immense skill to do good cross-examinations or ensure that the right evidence goes on record with the correct context. There are a large number of applications that one must learn to draft and file.

This course will help you to improve your skills in handling a criminal case. This course is practical – you will be given templates, guidelines and advice on how to handle a criminal case from an expert criminal lawyer
