One of the cardinal skills of an effective and successful lawyer is her ability to persuade and communicate with the court through her pleadings. The command over the pleadings and its drafting becomes an absolute necessity for any lawyer looking to gain expertise, establish themselves or stand out from the crowd in the world of litigation. Yet, drafting pleadings is a subject that is not adequately focused on in the law school curriculum. A young graduate is expected to learn by herself the nuances of drafting pleadings through years of practice and experience.

While there is no denial that drafting of pleading is a skilful art that is inculcated over time, the right approach and practical guidance from an experienced practitioner can cut down the time taken to achieve the craftsmanship of the highest order. Keeping this in mind, WizLaw Academy has designed a specially curated course by leading practitioners on the ‘Drafting of Court Pleadings’ delivered by an outstanding course instructor with over 17 years of experience.

This course aims to provide a hands-on study of the procedure for drafting pleadings from a practitioner’s perspective and through a modern approach. It will teach a drafter how one can synthesise facts, rules, and contention of their client in a simple, effective, and to-the-point language that is neither verbose nor loaded with legalese. The course will be taught with a systematic breakdown of a pleading and explaining each component of a pleading. There will be live demonstrations of drafting on a fictional case study which will be used as a central theme to discuss all the pleadings.

By the end of this course, a participant will get equipped with critical foundational skills of collecting, consolidating and coordinating facts, develop the ability to understand how substantive principles of laws are woven into pleadings, how a cause of action can be determined, how to skillfully draft the prayer based on the reliefs permissible under the applicable law, how to comply with the general rules of the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908, and most importantly, how to reproduce all of this under a clear, concise, persuasive, self-contained and self-explanatory language.

So if you are a young law student who is looking to enter into active litigation, or a budding lawyer looking to upskill and stand out from the crowd or any practitioner who wish to most effectively represent the interests of a client, this course will equip you with a holistic and practical understanding of principles and procedure of drafting and strategising various pleadings such as legal notices, its reply, plaint, written statement, set off, counterclaims, affidavits, interlocutory applications, review, revision and recall applications, appeals, and SLP along with its electronic filing procedures.
