About Virtual Law School
Virtual Law School (VLS) was founded during the national lockdown in April 2020 as a purely teaching initiative. Since then VLS has facilitated law classes and critical thinking webinars/workshops for thousands of law students from across the country. It only offers certificate courses and does not offer any diplomas or degrees. VLS promotes easy and affordable access to legal education. At VLS, Pro Bono Law Teachers and resource persons include Former Judges of Supreme Court & High Courts, Senior Lawyers, Senior Law Professors, Vice-Chancellors, Registrars of NLUs, well-accomplished law scholars, foreign judges and professors, law firm and corporate professionals and civil society subject experts. VLS works on a unique concept of accepting donations of pro bono teaching hours. Most of its courses are either pro bono or low bono only to cover the cost of this project. No one draws any monetary compensation from VLS. Hence, all its resource persons teach on a pro bono basis. And VLS is registered as a not for profit organization u/s. 8 of Companies Act, 2013 under the aegis of KETAS Education Foundation.
