Chirag M Narasimiah completed NUJS diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws in 2015 and is now studying in the final year of LLB at Gujarat National Law University (GNLU). In his 4th year, he received a PPO (pre-placement offer) at Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas. Previously, he has interned with prestigious Law firms like Amarchand & Mangaldas & Suresh A Shroff & Co, J. Sagar Associates and Samvad Partners.
We asked Chirag how the course helped him so far in his career, and he was more than happy to share his feedback about the course. So we decided to share it with all of you as a success story. Over to Chirag.
I had consulted my friends before joining the diploma course and the feedback I received from my friends was very encouraging. They told me that the approach of the course is very practice oriented. The diploma course provides a practical perspective to law which is missing in classroom studies and discussions.
At the time of joining the course, I had decided to pursue my career with law firms and it was a natural progression for me to join this course. I’m very happy with that decision of mine because I feel that my purpose of joining the course was well served. The course was very well structured and the process of pursuing it was smooth. It encouraged me to apply my knowledge and logic rather than just memorize theoretical knowledge. I’m very confident that this practical approach would help me when I start working at law firms.
I particularly enjoyed the drafting exercises because this would be the kind of work I will be doing when I will be working with law firms. This exercise gave me a firsthand experience in drafting. Another useful skill I learned from the course was due diligence. During my internship, I was involved in due diligence and I feel that the course really helped me as it covered due diligence in a detailed manner.
I strongly believe that mentioning the NUJS diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws in my CV made me stand out and helped me get shortlisted for interviews. Apart from interning with several prestigious law firms including JSA and AMSS, I have advised my friends who have started their own business.
The way my friends recommended this course to me, I would recommend the NUJS diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws to anyone who asks me for a feedback, especially if they are law students looking to quickly learn a lot of useful lessons that will help them to perform well at internships or interviews for corporate law firms.
