Workshop on Evidence Law in Practice- Part I
What you will learn?
What kinds of evidence are admissible in a court of law and what aren’t? What even is hearsay? What does “Res gestae” mean really? Hold on, what is “fact”? Never thought that something as simple as “fact” could mean so much more? What is this web???
Well, these are questions you will find answers to in what will be an experience like none other, with over four hours of teaching focussed on evidence law in action, and not in books! Naturally, considering the vast canvas to be covered, four hours is not enough, and accordingly, the workshop will be divided in two parts, with the second part set to be launched in the next month or later!!
