  • To make students aware of the various pre-defined data points and variable data points that a judgment contains.
  • To allocate the various pre-defined data points and generate various variable data points, beneficial for any research analysis that can pivot around the judgment or the conclusion of any case.
  • To delve deep into legal research of hundreds of relevant cases and peruse thousands of pages of decisions to deduce the right cases that are in favour of their client’s motion or application.
  • To know the opposing view and the case-law justification that may be presented to back up the opposing view, so that a defensive mitigation strategy can be prepared hence building the foundation for this strategy.

This stage comprises of two subjects for research related with case law. In this stage research on case laws is to be conducted and with basic analysis that enable the student to generated the fixed data points in case laws. As part of case law research the students has to in depth study the allocated case laws in numerous times and for generating fixed data point. Basic analysis of various Indian Bare acts with key points in case laws. This will be needed to generate the summary (abstract) of the each case law.


These are the fixed data points are available in each case laws. The fixed data points have to be submitted in the allocated field provided individual fixed data points. Weight age marks for each data point in the case law are as per Table 04 For marking the various fixed data point are grouped based on the time spent in and understanding the data points available is case laws. 500 Case laws are allocated to each student to generate the fixed data point for all the 500 case laws

ABSTRACT (LH002 ): Abstract for each judgments has to be generated by the students. Abstract should the most important points in a case law that can be like a summary of case law with most important point from various elements of judgments. The quality of the abstract and most important points has to be generated in the judgment abstract field provided. Minimum of 300 case laws from the allocated 500 case laws can be selected by the student. Marks for each abstract are as per TABLE 04. Students can always attempt more than 300 case laws to score high marks for achieving higher division in Diploma.


This stage covered two subjects for research related with case laws. Mainly in stage 2 it covers case law segmentation and generating the elements in case laws. The variable data points of each generated elements is to be generated. This stage covers both research on case laws and case law analytics as weight-age in terms of numeric percentage value to be generated. These percentage allotted by student are the analytical values that has the impact on then complete case law mainly the conclusion of the case law.

ELEMENTS (LH003 ): Every case law comprises of predefined elements that makes the complete case law as verdict passed by the judges. Complete case law is deeply research and the various elements are segregated and generated for each elements. The Analytics for each elements are generated for each the case law and research students, should be given weight-age in percentage (%) against the scale of 100%. Sum of allotted % for each element should be 100%. The weight-age for elements should be given based on its importance in complete case law that forms the complete judgment and also its impact on final conclusion of judgments. The accountability of the % allotted by student for each element with sum of all percentage to be 100%, will have impact on marking. Minimum of 200 case laws from the allocated 500 case laws can be selected by the student. Marks for elements generated are as per TABLE 05. Students can always attempt more than 200 case laws to score high marks for achieving higher division in Diploma.

VARIABLE DATA POINTS (LH004 ): Variable data points are like important key words that has influence and an impact in complete case law. The variable data point is generated for each element that was generated in subject LH003. Each keyword generated for element should be given weight-age in terms of percentage. Minimum of 200 case laws from the allocated 500 case laws can be selected by the student. Marks for elements generated are as per TABLE 05. Students can always attempt more than 200 case laws to score higher marks.


This stage is mainly the project work. This consists of two subjects. Legal articles writing and the Research project report that was covered in Subject LH001, LH002, LH003, LH004. Deep analysis of case laws and the analytical research of case law is the key of final stage of the Diploma course.

Grammatical and spelling mistakes in the legal articles will be accountable for the marks obtained for each articles. Every student has to write 10 articles on the topics that are provided. Articles with various analytical data will always benefit student in acquiring higher marks for articles. Refer Table 06 for marks

COMPLETE RESEARCH PROJECTS REPORT (LH006 ): Complete Research Project Reports based on a pre defined project report format has to be submitted. The final projects reports is generated from the analysis of various research covered in each subject (LH001, LH002, LH0013, LH001) . The project reports should also generate various analytical data that were derived from the research analysis in the subjects covered in first two stages of the Diploma course. Refer Table 06 for marks
