P.G.D.L.P.O. Programme Details

Aim

The P.G.D.L.P.O. seeks to train law graduates to ensure a perfect fit in existing legal practices in India, focusing on the outsourced legal services industry. The P.G.D.L.P.O. aims to satisfy needs at two levels: at the employee level, to aid law graduates in enhancing their employability, and at the industry level, so that employers can be assured of the quality of their prospective recruits. This programme will take students through certain fundamental areas of learning that are crucial for any lawyer desirous of joining this exciting sector of the legal industry.

The programme is designed to be delivered asynchronously, which means that learners do not necessarily have to progress at the same pace. Unlike how you may have experienced conventional education in your school and college, the PGDLPO programme allows you to learn at your own pace, and so, even if you enrol by the last date, you will still experience the programme as if it were made specifically for you and was meant to start the day you enrol!
