(Indian Law Institute, Delhi is one of the most prestigious law institutes of the country, just like IITs are for technology and IIMs are for management).

In addition, most of the topics are followed by a practical demonstration. Several senior police officials, Retired Judges, Supreme Court lawyers and retired officials come to the Academy to take lectures. Many of the topics are followed by a visit of the candidates to different places. They are detailed in the next part.
