Indian Law Institute - Online Certificate Course on 'Cyber Laws'
Applications are invited from eligible candidates for admission to Online Certificate Course on 'Cyber Laws' at the Indian Law Institute.
About the Institute:
Indian Law Institute has been the pioneer in the field of teaching and training of intellectual property laws and cyber laws. After having established a sound framework for the classroom teaching in these fields, we now plan to traverse the virtual world to embark on e-education.
By e-education is meant an innovative, on-line teaching technique for distance learning that utilizes the Internet for teaching purposes. E-education would bring teachers specializing in intellectual property issues closer to students in all corners of India through virtual means. This method allows students to undertake the ILI educational programs in intellectual property at their own place anywhere in India.
The Institute would use distance learning as an alternative and a complement to traditional training methods in order to make course materials accessible to large audiences throughout India.
About the course:
Development of Cyber law is a recent phenomenon. It is still in a nascent stage and continuously evolving every passing day.

The Online Certificate Course offered by the institute, intends to spread awareness among the general public about the cyber law, it is specifically beneficial to the lawyer community and the judges in the subordinate judiciary, who face cases on the daily basis.
