Sector Skill Council Launches Paralegal Course With LawSikho – BW Businessworld

The course is aimed at training candidates on high-demand tasks such as litigation support, legal writing, legal editing and proofreading, knowledge management, compliance-related work, legal blog management, basic financial administration and other administrative work.

Management & Entrepreneurship and Professional Skills Council (MEPSC), in association with leading legal edtech startup LawSikho, is launching an online course titled ‘Paralegal Associate – Legal documentation’ which would be co-certified by Skill India. MEPSC is a sector skill council set up under the aegis of National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), set up by the Ministry of Finance through a Public-Private Partnership.

Paralegal as a career option has gained new momentum in light of international remote work, and this upskilling course is classified as a Level 4 course under the National Skill Qualification Framework set up by the Ministry of Finance of Government of India and would be appropriate for learners who have completed at least 12th standard or equivalent education. This program is mapped to the National Occupational Standards of NSDC as well. This would be the first paralegal course from India to receive such recognition.

This course also provides extensive training on the US legal system so that candidates can assist US lawyers and law firms as paralegals.
