Success Stories

Imagine how it would be if you could navigate the usual legal and regulatory mess with ease, and make better decisions as you scale your business or career growth. Regulatory and legal difficulties is a huge hurdle to doing business in India, and very few people have mastery over it. We are inviting you to find out more about how we can add a touch of magic to your growth. Here are some amazing success stories of our students who have taken up our courses.

My purpose of joining the course is certainly fulfilled; it has given me the much needed practical knowledge of law. All modules in the course are designed with emphases on practical knowledge. The concepts are not explained theoretically but in a practical manner. I personally found the module on business structuring, institutional finance, and raising investment to be most beneficial for me. I am able to utilize this knowledge in my current job also.

Shivam Dubey

Associate, Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas

I am a computer science engineer by education, but an entrepreneur by profession. Having had no formal education in running a business I was always led to a lot of "learning the hard way". When iPleaders launched the course for Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws, in an e-learning mode I took up the course with the objective to understand all legal nuances related to running a business. The course covered things like; understanding of ESOP, Sweat Equity, Company Policy, License agreements, IP related law, EULA and lots of other content which made sense for our business.

Atul Gupta

Managing Director of InSync Tech-Fin Solutions Ltd

All the modules in the course are designed with the emphasis on practical knowledge. The concepts are explained in a very easy to understand language without any legal jargons. A person like me who is not from a legal background can also follow it easily. Institutional Finance and Raising investment were two modules which I personally found very interesting. I am able to utilize this knowledge in my current job also. When I informed my company that I have cleared this diploma from NUJS, my company gave me recognition for the same. I have now been shifted to Compliance department because of my knowledge about business and corporate law gained through this course. In future, I want to work with different institutes and colleges as a guest lecturer and this course has helped me prepare for that as well. I have been applying to various institutes and got a positive response from many of them. This course would certainly help me in my future vision also as I've learnt how to explain complex matters in an easy to understand manner from this course.

Atanu Biswas

Manager, Compliance, Peerless Group

I was in the final year at RMLNLU and was aware that if I fail to get a campus placement offer or a PPO, I would have to face lot of interviews. I had to be well versed in all aspects of law especially corporate and business law in order to crack the interviews. Even if I manged a PPO or a campus placement, I had to be aware of all basics of corporate law inorder to perform well in my job. I wanted a career in corporate law in a tier 1 law firm. All this was not possible with the knowledge gained through the law school curriculum only. I had to learn the business law basics in a practical manner and this diploma course was the perfect solution to it. This course provided an excellent curriculum around that. All the modules were very well planned with lot of emphasis on practical knowledge. The module I personally liked the most was the one related to the Companies Act and SEBI regulations. These were very informative and helpful. The webinars with Industry experts were another plus point of the course. These webinars exposed us to few of the best brains in the industry and their views and thoughts about different aspects of law.

Divye Bahadur

Associate, Trilegal

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.

Chirag Narasimiah

Associate at Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas & Co

Content wise the course is very good. It is designed in a manner that a person who is not from a legal background can also follow it. I have benefitted the most from the chapters related to how agreements are to be drafted and vetted, what are the precautions to be taken, how clauses can be negotiated etc.
The module on labour laws and company formation was also very informative; it has helped me to add value to the organisation where I work by involving in some of these parameters. I'm able to contribute to company in form of advice on labour laws while hiring somebody.
This course has empowered me to an extent that I not only understand what my legal team is doing, I also engage in discussions with them regarding different policies, clauses in agreements etc.

Harveer Singh Chadha

General Manager, IKAN Relocation Services

I work in a tech company with a lot of IP, the advanced issues I learned in the course regarding IP and Information Technology laws really help me to advise my senior management and have informed conversation with experts about these issues. In fact, my organization sponsored me to take up this course.
I was able to access the course comfortably and I am very happy with the course because it was very easy for me to pursue it online. Giving exams online and submitting assignments was very easy and a satisfying experience. The study material is amazing. It is not like usual legal textbooks that focus on sections and case laws, and it was really easy to learn concepts and practical issues that I may have to deal with at work anytime. Professionally it was very beneficial for me.
I am going to mentor future students in this course as is the tradition. I have always received great support from the iPleaders team whenever necessary. I will strongly recommend this course to other in-house counsels for rapidly learning a lot of areas of business law in a comprehensive manner.
