He was nominated by the Sakal times group as a young inspirations network ambassador.
He is currently pursuing the NUJS diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws. We asked him, why he joined the NUJS diploma when he has already achieved so much even before completing his Law degree. He had very interesting things to share, so we decided to present it to you all in the form of a success story. Over to Aditya:
I was looking up the internet for a diploma course, as I wanted to diversify my CV and came across the NUJS diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws.
I decided to join this diploma as it was by NUJS which is one of the top most law schools in our country and the course structure was also impressive. Secondly, most of the other diplomas available online were post graduate diplomas and I was an undergraduate.
My expectations from the course are fulfilled so far. Although I’m just half way through this diploma course, I can feel the difference it has made to my knowledge. We are taught commercial subjects in the fourth year only but this diploma has given me the basic understanding of these subjects and it gives me an edge over others in my class.
I’m very satisfied with the way the course is designed and executed. The support provided by the iPleaders team is exceptional. Things like CV consultation is something no university or even law school would provide. Although I had already made my CV by the time I enrolled for this diploma, this is very beneficial. It’s very difficult to get advice on how to create a CV and how to write an effective cover letter etc; even our professors can’t help much in this, as they don’t have much of corporate knowledge or insight into models of CV or cover letter.
My future plan is to do a Judicial Clerkship with a Judge in the Supreme Court of India for a year after my graduation and subsequently pursue an LLM from a reputed university abroad. This course would help me in my future vision also, as the basics are always important.
I’m waiting to complete my NUJS diploma so that I can mention it in my CV and my LinkedIn profile. I’m sure it would add value to my profile.
I would be happy to recommend this course to anyone; rather I’ve already recommended it to few of my friends. Personally, I feel law students from non-NLU colleges can benefit the most from it, even Law school students can benefit from this as it would help them learn things in a simpler manner.
