Ways to Study Law Online

Low-cost online law courses in India: Websites such as ILMS Academy, Coursera and Udemy offer free courses covering various legal fields, such as tax and employment law, or specific legal issues, such as bioethics and freedom of expression. Students may enroll in these online classes to gauge or fulfill their interest in different law specialties or develop a basic understanding of a topic for their current job. Certification courses like drafting and pleading courses or certification course in labour laws are the hot favourites to get job and great grades in university.

 

EdX, for example, develops massive open online courses, or MOOCs, with higher education institutions that students can audit for free; these range from International Human Rights Law with the University Catholique of Louvain in Belgium to Intellectual Property Law and Policy with the University of Pennsylvania. On edX and Coursera, students may also pay around $30 to $150 for certificates of completion, with courses having either specific start dates or being completely self-paced.

 

Online certificate programs and career training: A certificate – either for credit or not – may provide opportunities to learn about a specific field of law, but it won't allow a student to become a practicing attorney. USC Online at the University of Southern California offers a for-credit graduate certificate in business law, consisting of five courses in as few as two semesters and costing more than $29,000, including fees.

 

Other online certificates are geared toward those who want a specific job like legal secretary or paralegal. The Center for Legal Studies partners with nearly 200 accredited U.S. colleges and universities to offer virtual career training for those positions and others, along with classes on topics including intellectual property law for engineers and alternative dispute resolutions. It also offers online LSAT and other exam preparation
