Amity University launches India's first online paralegal programme.

Noida (Uttar Pradesh), July 17 ( ANI ): Signalling a paradigm shift in the process of learning, Amity University and Indian Academy of Law and Management (IALM) have inked an MoU to jointly introduce a course on professional paralegal certification for the first time in India".

The Amity-IALM course will systematically and professionally help corporate departments such as legal, finance, human resource, insurance, real estate, PR and Media, intellectual property, government affairs and compliance," said Major General (retired) Nilendra Kumar of the Amity Law School in Noida.

A paralegal expert understands, strategizes and executes modern day corporate functions and understands the business as well as the "right" way to do the business legally.

"While lawyers are always good at drafting policies and meeting escalations, the management and execution of policies are left to Paralegals in any organizational function," said Dr.Pinaki Ghosh, Associate Vice President-IP, Reliance Industries.

While western countries and developed economies already have organized institutions, certifications and well defined career paths for paralegals, India always lacked such an educational stream with highly lucrative career paths.

India with its huge educated youth population needs to nurture and provide alternative income streams and recognition to its well deserved student community.

"Amity University's pioneering initiative of launching the Online course in Paralegal will enable the candidates to learn professional paralegal skills anytime, anywhere through interactive teaching and learning process. The program is fully online and digital, comprising interactive sessions from renowned legal exponents. The course offers 15 days guaranteed internship with leading law firms and interviews using IALM and partner law firms, post its completion" says Dr Manoj Sharma, Director, Amity University Online.

The current paralegal certification course is multifaceted and offers to train students in IT-tools and software management, litigation in courts, real estate transactions, intellectual property management, corporate contract handling, managing litigations, doing IPR filings, debt recovery categorization, E-Discovery, legal process outsourcing (LPOs), banking, finance and insurance-related process.
