Workshop on Courtroom Approach to Criminal Procedure

4 min read

What stops young lawyers from becoming good criminal Lawyers?

Reading a book on criminal Procedure and understanding the  practical aspects in court room  are entirely different ball games. You may have read a book, you may know sections, but you may find yourself stuck when it comes to appearing and understanding the procedure. Every day has a legal implication for your clients and other parties, which can give you a tremendous sense of responsibility and fear, especially when you haven’t been trained or practised.

Criminal trials take years to complete and it becomes difficult to understand the procedural aspect in short amount of time, irrespective of one’s level of knowledge, we have seen that a lot of barriers come in the way while appearing in criminal courts, such as:

  • Anxiety and fear. Many law graduates just cannot gather the courage to utter even a single word, even if they know something conceptually.
  • Being sure that what you’re doing is right. We have seen people over-thinking. They have no way of recognizing. 

There is so little that is taught in law schools about Practical Aspects of Criminal Procedure that any real life practice you can get is worth having. Unfortunately, in internships, you rarely get work beyond proof-reading and taking passovers. It doesn’t take much to realize that watching other appear and understanding the procedure are poles apart. In a law firm, the seniors and partners don’t have time to teach you and you have to figure out things yourself which takes a lot of time.

What is the downside of not learning and sharpening your skills in law school?

If you don’t have skills, it has deep impact on your career:

  1. You don’t have an opportunity to distinguish yourself in interviews, which simply wipes off many jobs you could have secured.
  2. When you start work, seniors don’t give you any concessions for not knowing the practical aspects beforehand, despite knowing that you were not taught this in law school, and despite not having learnt this themselves in law school.   
  3. You will end up trying to figure out the procedure which takes years This is only one area of improvement, and there were countless others which a young lawyer learn over the year.

My Legal Advisor in association with Women Entrepreneurs Foundation and Juris Law Offices is announcing a 1-day workshop on Courtroom Approach to Criminal Procedure to impart the next level of practical training, which will be led by Advocate Vikas Nagwan, Founder and Chairman of Juris Law Offices, a known law firm in litigation.

What will your performance be like if you learn and practice before a criminal court and learn from the expertise of a known criminal lawyer?

How much time, struggle and effort will you save in your career? What will that be worth? What kind of results will you create?   

Even if you have read a book or taken a course earlier, we suggest you participate and don’t miss out on the opportunity. At the end of the workshop, you will have a new level of understanding.
