SAUMYA SRIVASTAVA (FACULTY OF LAW, ALLAHABAD UNIVERSITY)
My experience so far in the Legal Advancement Certificate Course conducted by Thomson Reuters is very nice. The assessments are interesting and the knowledge imparted by the videos is really helpful and informative. As far as the live video sessions are concerned, I was unable to attend the second session due to some personal reasons. I watched the recording of the session which was very enlightening. We have just passed the first module and working on the second module which is perhaps more interesting. There is still a lot to learn and this course is quite useful for enhancement of the practical knowledge of law. I am sure by the end of this course I will have a better understanding of the workings of the law courts, drafting etc.

Right from the welcome session the way this course took shape was quiet fantastic. By allowing us to communicate with experts in the field, it has made the subject more understandable as to the legal subjects and career. I sincerely appreciate the efforts of the LAP team for taking up the need so sincerely and delivering some material like this. So far it is exquisite & has depth in the subject, conveyed through simple and effective videos. Thus it’s easy to follow. The illustrations are extremely helpful. Now this makes me more confident and gives me pride to share that I am not like the rest, the reason I chose the best.

The Legal Advancement Program initiated by Thomson Reuters is a great success. It provided me with a platform to hone my skills and shape them accordingly to acquire the necessary attributes in becoming a competent and a successful lawyer. This program is one of a kind and has truly transformed the learning experience for a law student who steps into the world of competitiveness after completing his academic studies. The program uses innovative scenarios to help one apply the law to practical situations. Along with the self assessment scenarios, live-sessions are conducted on various career specific topics, which helps one cope with all the queries running around in his/her mind. It is an absolutely wonderful and fruitful experience for me to gain access to these scenarios and live-sessions and work through them. I would like to congratulate Thomson Reuters in starting this program and I look forward to more advanced legal courses in the future.
