Rescheduling is allowed subject to certain terms and conditions. Please refer to our Rescheduling Policy:

LawSkills offer courses with fixed duration to learners. Thus, each course has a definite duration for which access is given to the learner once they purchase the course. So, if the course duration is of 8 weeks, learners enrolled in the course will need to complete the course within 8 weeks after they have been successfully enrolled.

If a case arises when the learner, after successful enrollment in a course, assesses that they will not be able to devote the time required to complete the course in the specified duration, they may request for the course to be rescheduled. LawSkills will consider the request in the light of our Rescheduling Policy, which is as follows:

  • The rescheduling request will only be entertained if the course duration of 75% is still available after the course is purchased/ enrolled in. For example, for an 8 weeks course, the rescheduling request will be accepted till the commencement of 2 weeks from the date of purchase/ enrollment.
  • Learners can avail the facility of rescheduling only once for a course.
  • Master classes, face-to-face sessions, online live sessions or any other event scheduled during the original duration of the course cannot be rescheduled. However, learners can request to attend similar events scheduled later for the same course, but it will be at the sole discretion of LawSkills to grant any such facility or entertain such requests.
  • The reschedule date cannot be later than 6 months from the date of original purchase/ enrollment of the course.

No refunds will be granted for any rescheduling. Please refer to your Refund Policy.

All rescheduling requests should be mailed to contact@lawskills.in.
