The programmes being launched are Diploma in Advanced Contract Drafting, Negotiation & Dispute Resolution; Diploma in Cyber Law, FinTech Regulations & Technology Contracts; Diploma in M&A, Institutional Finance & Investment Laws (PE and VC transactions).

The 520-hour courses, with batches of 30 students each, feature a foundational understanding of the components and structure of contracts, deal negotiation, regulation of emerging technology, fintech and e-commerce laws, deal structuring, due diligence and deal compliance for mergers and acquisitions and investment transactions. The courses are exclusive to the students who sign up for them through the ASAP Kerala portal.

ASAP Kerala, which offers training in 56 National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF) aligned courses in 17 skill sectors, has been perfecting modules and curriculums to build training programmes that increase employability. ASAP has to date skilled over 1,00,000 youth of the state in over 20 skill sectors and 85 trades.

Dr Usha Titus, CMD, ASAP Kerala, said, “In this ever-changing world of opportunities, change is the only constant.

With the advent of IR4.0 and advanced technology, there is a colossal demand for legal professionals and managers. The legal sector, until recently, had overlooked these aspects of acquiring skill-sets in contemporary technology. This is where ASAP Kerala has stepped in to partner with LawSikho to provide hands-on skilling to students and professionals in this domain. We’ll also be assisting youth in securing placements in the ultra-competitive corporate world as professional lawyers and paralegals.”

LawSikho, a Delhi-based legal ed-tech company having served over 16,000 learners from across the globe, is focussed on creating online legal training and enabling geo-arbitrage of legal talent and access to justice.

While speaking of the tailor-made courses with internship and placement support and the collaboration with ASAP Kerala, Ramanuj Mukherjee, CEO of LawSikho, said, “We are excited to work with a partner like ASAP Kerala. This is a pioneering initiative in legal skill development and employability by a state government initiative. The legal upskilling and employability space is challenging, but we hope to make it just a little easier for the students, who already have so much on their plate. The team at ASAP Kerala share our values and have worked passionately to launch these courses and we are very excited about the next phase.”

There are three more courses in the pipeline that are expected to be launched by the end of March as a part of this collaboration — Diploma Course in Paralegal Associateship; Diploma in Labour, Employment, and Industrial Laws (including POSH) for HR Managers; and Certificate course in Introduction to Legal drafting: Contracts, Petitions, Opinions, and Articles.
