Why is NotJustLex different?

  • Learning will primarily be through engagement with the participants. Each learning module will be conducted through naturally moderated sessions. We intend to facilitate a process of collective analysis and learning. It’s a fun way to learn the law. We have been testing this approach for some time now in our classroom sessions. The results have been fabulous. For the very first time, we are going online.

  • All the sessions will be moderated through live video interactive streaming.

  • A session will not have more than 25 participants. We understand that this may be strenuous on us as we will have to do the same session with several batches during the day. But we are happy to do so, to make sure that we deliver what we promise. Merely a good reach is not our aim. We will always move away from anything which has the potential of affecting the quality of learning.

  • There’s no prior reading required. No expectation of note taking. What we discuss is what what we learn.

  • We will not be sharing the recorded video sessions with any of the participants. They have to attend all the live video sessions. However, we will be available to clarify doubts that the participants may have during and even after the completion of the course. We are just an email away!

  • Participants will be assessed on the basis of their participation in sessions and exercises which we will be conducting during the term of the course.

  • At the end of the course, we will be conducting a one-on-one feedback session with each participant over a video call.
