Code of Conduct – Our Expectations
At Delhi Law Academy, we focus on you – our students. Our aim is to provide you with the best possible education and give you all the essentials needed to succeed in whichever exam you are planning to face.
To succeed in our mission, we find it advantageous to lay out our expectations and assurances beforehand. This is so that you, our student, are aware of what the classroom experience will be like, and your time is saved to that extent. At the same time,
Our Teaching Methodology and Pedagogy
- We do not believe in either dictation or rote learning at Delhi Law Academy, as that is not how competent legislators and eminent jurists are created. We will be providing printed notes of all topics covered in the classroom. However, students are advised to actively take notes during classes, as this aids understanding and is very important for retention.
- We also believe that Law is learned through discussion, and cannot be taught as a one-way stream of lecturing from the instructor o the student. Hence, we actively encourage asking doubts during the classroom sessions. For this purpose, 10 minutes of each class will be set aside. This is further aided by our rational batch size, due to which the instructor can easily see and directly speak to each and every student in the class. At the same time, we expect your understanding and cooperation when the instructor decides to move on to the next doubt or topic, as this will be for the larger benefit of the class.
- After a significant amount of theory portion is covered, we will commence conducting mock tests, which would include answer-writing practice as well.
Classroom Rules and Regulations
- Fees once paid, are neither refundable nor adjustable under any circumstances whatsoever.
- Please be on time for each class. We understand that traffic and schedules can sometimes cause delays, hence we allow a margin of 15 minutes after the class starts. However, after this time, further entry will not be allowed and the student will be marked absent for that particular class.
- Attendance will be taken for each class by electronic means via student ID Card which will be issued at the time of registration. Hence, students are requested to carry their ID card with them for each class.
- Usage of mobile phones, eating, drinking or any other activities disruptive to the classroom atmosphere are strictly disallowed.
- Audio and/or video recording in the classroom are strictly disallowed.
- The student would need to provide us a valid telephone number and email ID at the time of admission, as all administrative communications to the student would be by email or SMS.
General Terms and Conditions for Judiciary Classroom Course
- Fees once paid are neither refundable nor adjustable under any circumstances whatsoever.
- Delhi Law Academy does not offer discounts in fees for its classroom programs. We further do not entertain any negotiations on the fee amount.
- We offer students the option to pay fee completely or in installments. The details for this are given on the course page itself. If a student opts for the installment payment plan, please note that late payment of fees due (if any) would make the student liable to pay a fine of Rs. 200 per day of delay, to be counted from the due date of such payment. You might also be stopped from attending the classes in case of such a default. The Head of Faculty (Prof Madan) holds the discretion to allow such late payments under reasonably explained circumstances, for which written permission must be obtained from Madan Sir personally.
- We also offer merit scholarships with fee reductions for deserving students. The details for this are given on the course page itself.
- Students are entitled to attend classes only during the course duration for which they are enrolled, as per their batch at the time of enrollment. There is no facility to optionally attend or repeat a part of the course. If a student wishes to attend classes for a subject or part of a subject, the full course fees would have to be paid again.
- Irregularity in classes is not allowed. Please note that Delhi Law Academy will not be responsible for non-completion of the course if a student has not been regular to the classes. Extreme absenteeism may lead to cancellation of student admission. Exceptions may be made for reasonable periods upon obtaining written permission from the Head of Faculty.
- If a student is forced to miss classes due to examinations or other exigencies, they may be permitted to make up the missed classes by obtaining a written permission for the same from the Head of Faculty. Without such permission, repeating any part of the course would not be allowed.
- The batch beginning and ending dates will be informed to you at time of admission. The typical course duration is 6 months, for both weekday and weekend batches, to be counted from the date of commencement of the batch as informed to you. This duration may be subject to minor extensions (2-3 weeks) if required by circumstances.
- The venue of the class may be changed at the discretion of the Head of Faculty, in case such need arises during the course.
- The Head of Faculty holds the discretion to terminate the admission of a student on the grounds of indiscipline. In such cases, the decision of the Head of Faculty would be final and binding.
