He completed the NUJS Diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws in 2016. He had a very fulfilling experience with the course. So we decided to share it with you all as a success story. Over to Sumit.
I joined the NUJS diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws while I was working with the Calcutta Stock Exchange. I had already done my LLB and was looking for a course which would give me some practical insight.
I came across the NUJS Diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws while searching the internet. I was looking for some course for value addition to my profile and knowledge. I had already done my LLB and MBA but wanted some practical knowledge. This course appealed to me, as it was dealing with business laws and I was working with a corporate. So this course was very significant to me and covered things which were relevant to me.
The course syllabus covered subjects such as taxation, employee management laws, incorporation law, negotiation etc. Webinars by industry experts were the best part of the course structure; one can get in-depth knowledge of the subjects from these webinars. The NUJS diploma course has a very engaging and practical approach towards the subjects. I especially found the modules on one Person Company, FDI policies, and IPR to be very practical and beneficial. This was something which would come handy at my work.
I still refer the course materials as and when I come across different cases. I find it very handy as all this is online and can be accessed 24/7. Secondly, the course materials are updated from time to time, whenever a new act or an amendment is made it’s updated in the course, this way this course material is a handy reference source.
I also benefitted immensely from the iPleadersClub; a platform provided by iPleaders, over and above the NUJS course for overall grooming of its students. The various activities conducted as part of the club helped me improve my drafting and writing skills. I started writing blogs as part of the club activity which eventually got published in the iPleaders blog.
I even got to work as an editor for www.superlawyer.in, thanks to the grooming I received from iPleaders club.
I’ve mentioned this diploma in my CV and my Linked in profile. When I went for my interview I had questions around this diploma which led to a conversation. In future, I plan to set up my own legal firm and I strongly feel that the knowledge gained through this course would come handy then also.
I would be more than happy to recommend this course to anyone, I would personally recommend this course to anyone who is interested in law, not just a lawyer but any individual who wants to know various laws.
