INDIAN LAW INSTITUTE
Online certificate course on Intellectual Property Rights
Indian Law Institute (ILI) 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 IPR is a recent phenomenon. It is still in a nascent stage and continuously evolving every passing day. Even the most learned legal luminaries find it difficult to solve the legal problems posed by technology. The Online Certificate Course offered by the institute, intends to spread awareness among the general public about the IPR, it is specifically beneficial to the lawyer community and the judges in the subordinate judiciary, who face cases on the daily basis.
The course is designed to give distant education wherein the students need not come to the institute for either classes or examination. The course will be conducted online and the subscribers need to operate from their respective places. All the queries of the subscribers relating to the admission or the conduct will be answered online.
The Institute’s initiative takes full advantage of information technology and the Internet as an alternative and a complement to traditional training programs. It offers new teaching methodologies, specially-designed course materials, evaluation tools, tailored means of delivery, and greater accessibility.
Teaching would take place in the virtual environment of the Institute’s Web site. A network of tutors on the panel of ILI will be available to guide the students. Students and teachers can interact as often as necessary during the course, because communication takes place through e-mail.
At the end of the program, successfull students receive a certificate acknowledging completion of the course.
