What exactly are E-Learnings by Law in Practice?

First, Law in Practice uses the terms „Online Course“ and „E-Learning“ synonymously, so both terms mean the same. Our E-Leardings are Video Courses for Self-Learning. Additionally, the E-Learnings come with a  training material in pdf-form. You can directly download this material once you start with the course. Access to the course is granted for one year and automatically expires. You can immediately start with your course after grant of access and determine the training tempo by yourself.

What are the technical prerequisites to attend an E-Learning?

You need a PC, Mac, Tablet or Smartphone with internet access, a sound card and loudspeakers. An appropriate system software is Microsoft Windows (7/8/10), Linux, Apple Mac OS X, iOS or Android. As Browser you can use for example Chrome, Safari or Firefox. You may also use latest version of the Internet Explorer (version 11). You find a demo video in the product description of each E-Learning which technically complies with the E-Learning videos. Thus, you may use the demo video to test whether you can watch the E-Learning videos on your your device. To read the provided pdf-training material you need a pdf-reading software and a software to “de-zip” the file  (e.g. Acrobat Reader and WinZip). If you wish to print-out the training material and your certificate (if applicable to an E-Learning), you need a printer which is connected with your device.

Can I attend an E-Learning via my mobile or tablet?

Yes. Our E-Learnings are in general designed to be used via mobile devices. 

How long does an E-Learning take?

The product description of each E-Learning shows the total length of the videos, the number of quizzes and the number of questions of the final test (if applicable). Depending on this, it regularly takes between a day and a week to complete an E-Learning. However, as you determine the training tempo by yourself, you may also allow for a longer or shorter duration. However, we recommend completing the single lessons in one step and not to interrupt the training for a longer period. As you have one year access to the online course, you may of course also watch the training videos again and refresh your know how.

If I interrupt my E-Learning for a while - will I have to re-start from the beginning?

No. You current learning progress is saved in our system for the duration of your access period. Thus, you can return to this status once you continue with the E-Learning.

Will I be informed about changes in the law and will my E-Learning be automatically updated?

No. You have just purchased the E-Learning based on the know how and legal rules valid at the point in time of the purchase (also stated in the product description and reflected by the article number/SKU). An information about changes in law or judgments of courts is not included in the contract. The same applies to any updates of an E-Learning. Each updated E-Learning is a separate new product. If you which to access this, you need to purchase this product. However, if you wish to receive information about an update of your E-Learning please e-mail us to update[at]lawinpractice.eu. In case of a purchase of the update, we of course grant a discount. The amount of the discount depends on the scope of changes of the E-Learning.
