April 17, 2018, Pune …

There could never be a smart, easy and effective way to equip yourself with the legal knowhow than now. Manupatra, India’s pioneer and premier legal information, search, analytics, and visualization platform today announced their aggressive plans to launch their new offerings www.LawSkills.in, a robust online and multilingual platform providing an afforadable, convenient and easy way to earn Certification learning various Legal and Professional subjects and skills.

Having carved a niche for itself in the online legal research in India since 2001, Manupatra hopes to tap the latent demand and offer an impressive bouquet of courses to a cross-section of law aspiring and potential users. The move comes in the wake of company’s concerted plans to consolidate its core business and stay ahead of competition. This was disclosed at a press conference here in Pune today.

Speaking on the launch of www.LawSkills.in Mr. Deepak Kapoor, CEO remarked, “At Manupatra, since inception we have been driven to offer our users newness in content and the ease of learning law anytime, anywhere! The rationale of setting up this venture is to act as a catalyst, and experience our brand that bridges the gap between legal education and profession to create opportunities for young lawyers, legal practitioners , professionals, students and people at large. Paradoxically, after graduating in law from colleges and schools, students aren’t really equipped enough to step into the legal world with confidence. Our cornerstone is to build a constructive ecosystem of industry practitioners and learners to make learning easy, interesting, affordable and accessible to millions of learners across geographies.”

Detailing further on the comprehensive courses Manupatra’s COO Ms Priyanka added, “While India is at the cusp of change and the changing socio-economic pattern calls to become more conversant with subjects like law, the existing options available does not necessarily provide a standardised structure wherein your learning law is faster and practising easier.www.LawSkills.in has been conceived primarily to create a space for equal opportunities and expand the access to legal knowledge across various geographies and strata to be shared through standardised courses. The courses atwww.LawSkills.in have been specially designed and developed by leading practitioners and experienced professionals, in their respective field and subject, with each course that would include a strong theoretical foundation supplemented with practical and professional inputs (such as, Course on Environment by Enviro Legal Defense Firm ELDF ; Competition Laws by Dr. Vijay Kumar Aggarwal, Senior Attorney, Advaita Legal and the team at Seth Dua & Associates (now Advaita Legal). ; Sports Law by Shivam Singh Sports Law Specialist ; Contracts Law by Dr. Garima Tiwari, Assistant Professor at Bennett University, to name a few).”

More importantly, we see immense potential in tapping growth potential in the hinterland of India as the recent trend forecast that the internet users in regional languages has doubled to 536 million beating English users to a lagging 1999 million. (Source : KPMG and Google Report 2017 – “Indian Languages — Defining India’s Internet), Hence our courses are in Hindi, English and across popular regional languages such as Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Kannada which will further bolster our growth chart. We aim to cover 10 languages ober next 2 years. Our courses are smartly structured in a modular format, with flexibility and the course material is practical and relevant. With an add-on facility with audio and visual tools to facilitate learning, it is an interesting way to keep up moving up on your learning curve.”

Speaking on the competitive scenario, Ms Priyanka further added, “The sector has immense growth potential with new players joining the bandwagon. The market is estimated to be Rs 600 crores and growing at 38% [Source https://assets.kpmg.com/content/dam/kpmg/in/pdf/2017/05/Online-Education-in-India-2021.pdf.] Owing to our rich legacy and sound credentials, we intend being a critical player in this sector and will also be staying ahead of competition. To this end, besides online learning, we will be holding Physical classes in form of summer schools, boot camp to get ready for work , including setting up new outfits to further enhance our base.
