About AmicusX

AmicusX is an online platform that reflects the evolving dynamics of legal education. This website is the result of the enthusiasm of a group of law students, lawyers and laymen, who have come together to decode and cognize the multi-faceted understanding of law. The website offers its visitors an opportunity to read about different legal aspects through its blogs, but the offering does not end there.
