To the uninitiated, approaching the maze of corporate laws can seem daunting. This course helps to break down the realm of corporate law, starts with explaining the legal method, and then familiarises you with the sources of corporate law and helps you develop a systematic approach to reading corporate law. This will include learning how to:
- read and apply legal material
- navigate through various sources of law and know their hierarchy
- navigate the sources of corporate law
- access materials on the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) website
In the course, you will be able to appreciate the magnitude of legal literature, including legislative material, case laws, essential glossaries and commentaries, which will enable you to succeed in the programme.
The course answers questions like: How does one read a statute, rules and cases? What is their relative importance? How should I begin my journey of studying corporate law? How vast is the realm of corporate law? And how are the various subjects like company law, securities law, competition law, mergers and acquisitions, and insolvency law interconnected?
The course also includes a hands-on workshop class that will clear doubts and provide feedback. Before the session, you could explore the realm of corporate law. Your assignment in the form of a mind map will enable you to understand the branches of corporate law and its materials.
The course is a must-take for those not yet initiated in studying legal materials. That said, the course would also help any experienced practitioner gain a birds-eye-view of the branches and sources of corporate law.
