Best Cyber Law Training In India

Cyber crimes in India are increasing and so is the demand for trained cyber law professionals.

Cyber law is catching up with the legal and technical professionals as a career. Cyber law is a techno-legal aspect rather than being legal or technical. A person who has working knowledge of both legal and technical aspects alone can be a good cyber law professional. Further, mere academic knowledge is of no use in the present competitive environment and practical training and coaching is of paramount importance.

Perry4Law Techno-Legal Base (PTLB) is one of the premier techno-legal institutions of the world and the best in India. It provides a good combination of techno-legal education, coaching and training to the enrolled professionals. It has launched training and coaching courses like Bar Examinations, Cyber Law Training, etc.

If you need a good career in cyber law and allied fields you may try these courses.


Legal System Of India Needs Reforms

Praveen Dalal

This is a “Guest Column” by Mr. Praveen Dalal, Managing Partner of Perry4Law. In this opinion he has expressed his views regarding bringing qualitative changes in the legal education system of India.

Legal education is the base for a versatile and robust “Bar and Bench” in India. Unfortunately, the quality of law graduates is, by and large, not up to the mark. Those who dare to go for traditional litigation system are faced with tremendous difficulties. This is more so regarding first generation lawyers who have no god father to support them.

There is no doubt about the fact that face value plays an important role in Indian courts. Of course, we have many good judges who encourage young and fresh lawyers to argue and present their cases. This is a great inspiration as well as encouragement for young lawyers.

However, in this period of confusion and doldrums, the Law Minister of India and Bar Council of India (BCI) must take some urgent and immediate steps to rejuvenate Indian legal system. The call is for both HRD Minister Mr. Kapil Sibbal as well as for law Minister Mr. Veerappa Molly. While the former must inculcate qualitative legal education at the graduation level the latter must make it sure that Indian Legal and judicial Systems have a good pool of talented lawyers and judges.

Easy said than done. At the same time we also need proper management and collaborations to take legal and judicial standards of India to highest level. Time has come when all the concerned stakeholders must unite their expertise to improve the legal system of India.

Human Rights In India At Stake

Civil liberties in India in general and privacy rights in particular are at stake. The government of India is doing its level best to invade human rights of Indians. It is formulating projects after projects without any regard to civil liberties of Indians. Whether it is Aadhar project of India or Natgrid Project of India the civil liberties of Indians are openly and blatantly violated.

Aadhar project of India is devoid of any legal framework that may back the spending of crores of money. There is no sense in continuing the project till there is a constitutionally sound law backing its operations. Till now the UIDAI is operating without any authority and there is no justifications for the amount spend under the project.

Similarly, Natgrid project was originally stalled due to protests from experts and lack of privacy safeguards. The Home ministry of India is trying to revive the same with great disregard to privacy rights and civil liberties. According to media reports, even the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) of India has unofficially cleared the project. After the protests from civil liberty experts the government of India has once again declared that it would clear the Natgrid project only after independent audit regarding proper safeguards for privacy rights of stakeholders.

It seems the government of India is not serious at all about privacy rights in India and it merely gives press statement the moment it faces a protest. Only time will tell how sincere it is regarding protecting privacy rights and civil liberties of Indians?


Cabinet Committee on Security Is Taking Natgrid Casually

Natgrid Project Of India does not safeguard civil liberties violations in India.

It has been reported that the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) has cleared the setting up of the highly controversial National Intelligence Grid (Natgrid) project, which will allow investigating, enforcement and intelligence agencies to access real-time information easily. What is surprising is that the issues that makes Natgrid project violative of civil liberties of Indians have not yet been resolved. Even the CCS has not yet gone through the detailed project report prepared by Home Ministry that claims that privacy violations issues have been resolved.

Interestingly, the detailed report has to be finalised and then only it will be shown to home minister P. Chidambaram before being sent back to CCS. If this is the procedure then there is no question of getting a clearance from CCS at this stage unless both Home Ministry and CCS considers the “safeguards exercise” a formality and redundant exercise.
