About Course


Domestic Violence Act course is designed to provide comprehensive knowledge and insights into the legal framework and dynamics surrounding domestic violence. Domestic violence is a pervasive issue that affects individuals and families across various societies. According to the National Family Health Survey (NFHS-4), conducted in 2015-16, around 30% of ever-married women aged 15-49 in India have experienced physical, sexual, or emotional violence by their spouses. India has enacted the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act (PWDVA) in 2005 to address domestic violence comprehensively. However, there is a need to enhance awareness about the existence of this legal framework and its provisions.

LeDroit India through this course aims to empower professionals, practitioners, and individuals with the necessary understanding of the Domestic Violence Act, enabling them to contribute effectively to the prevention and intervention efforts.
