CLATapult’s modules are different. We teach you not only for CLAT but also for your life as a law student and beyond.

Now, this might scare you. Will managing both be difficult? Will it mean that your CLAT preparations will take a backseat?

No.

CLATapult believes in the beauty of the AND and the tyranny of the OR. We prepare our students for Clat AND for their life as a law student/lawyer. It need not be an OR.

Our modules tell you about the concepts which are tested in Clat AND how those are used by law students and lawyers.

For example, take legal reasoning for CLAT. It will surely benefit a law aspirant if he/she knows why that concept is important. Here is a snippet from our module:


THE LAW OF TORTS OR THE LAW OF TORT?

How does an “S” matter? How does it matter if it’s the Law of Tort or the Law of Torts? For lawyers, it matters. An S matters, because the eyes of the specie that a lawyer is, are sharp; the mind is sharper; and when such a specie finds something as harmless as an extra S hovering on a word, it’s hackles rise.

It pounces on the “S” like a pack of Bloodhounds on the game, and it argues and harps on the “S” till it no longer remains the harmless alphabet, but becomes a question of fundamental rights of some exploited people or a question of lots of money, perhaps even a country’s economy.

And because it matters for the specie that is a lawyer, it should matter for a law aspirant too. Your future life will revolve around the S! Putting an S or omitting an S in a legal document (and such little things) often become a battle ground for the legal people[1]. (Ah! Here we introduce you to the ‘footnote’).

So start dotting your I’s and crossing your T’s and curving your S’s well. For the uninitiated, it’s called due diligence.

 


[1] Footnote, that’s a first word which any law student learns. This is an example of a footnote.

Also, Due Diligence is the first word a law student intern gets to know about. Hunting for stray S’s is what due diligence is!

Due diligence” is a term used for a number of concepts involving either an investigation of a business or person prior to signing a contract, or an act with a certain standard of care. It can be a legal obligation, but the term will more commonly apply to voluntary investigations. A common example of due diligence in various industries is the process through which a potential acquirer evaluates a target company or its assets for acquisition.- From Wikipedia here.
