Thomson Reuters has introduced a professional skills training programme for lawyers in India. The legal advancement programme, the first of its kind in India, is specifically designed to prepare newly-qualified lawyers for day one of their career. It offers a flexible, self-paced online training experience that provides new lawyers with the core practical skills they will need on a daily basis in their professional career. It enables candidates to put their theory of law into practice by using real-life legal situations, combined with innovative web-based training techniques.

The programme culminates in a rigorous examination, after which successful students receive a programme completion certificate. Those students scoring 90% or higher will receive a distinction on the completion certificate, together with assistance in securing a legal internship. The programme takes up to four months, or 80 hours, to complete. To learn more about the programme and eligibility, visit:
