Object of the course

In view of the wide spread use of Computers in Business, Governance and Communication, the legal regime applicable to Electronic Documents which can be generally described as “Cyber Laws” becomes applicable to most of the day to day transactions in which common men are involved today. Simultaneously Crimes are increasingly committed using Computers or with Computers as targets of Crime. As a result “Cyber Crimes” have become a very important part of Law enforcement. With effect from 6th February 2003, the Negotiable Instruments Act 1881 was amended to incorporate electronic versions of cheques opening the doors for another revolutionary phase of Indian Banking. Over and above there are several aspects of Intellectual Property Laws such as Copyright, Trademarks and Patents that affect the functioning of an Internet Banking Institution.

The study of “Cyber Laws” has therefore become absolutely essential to the career of any law professional. Progressive Law Education Centers therefore have a need to enable their students be exposed to Cyber Laws before they develop their professional career.
