Connecting and networking
It is always important to be connected, to discuss, to talk. A course where you cannot do that loses half its value. In an online course, how do you speak to your peers, other professionals, fellow students and teachers? How do you just walk up to someone and say 'Hi!', introduce yourself, and strike up a conversation? Well, we have got you covered. The classes on EBC Learning do not take place in any ordinary online webinar platform. They take place in an online space where you can walk up to people, talk, have break-out sessions, group discussions, connect, exchange ideas, cards, introductions. A virtual, interactive-classroom space, where you can stroll around in the classroom, bump into your classmates, go visit the cafeteria, or for that matter the beach! Why not? Take a stroll on the beach and discuss the latest M&A transaction.
Why did we come up with this course?
The corporate world has today assumed prime importance and is in large part responsible for the development of the Indian economy. The coming of the startup era, the focus on ease of doing business, corporate law and regulation reform, tax reform, labour reform, the focus on job creation and entrepreneurship are all symbolic of this focus. With this increased focus the legal and regulatory framework has become more and more complex. Only those thrive who know the law and know how to manage and operate within it. The business executive today is only too aware of the need to know corporate law. The realisation of her vision is inextricably linked with knowing and operating in this complex regulatory and compliance framework.
The focus on and the need to know and understand the legal framework concerning corporations is reflected in Indian law schools. While earlier law school education was focused on preparing persons for being legal advocates, today that focus has shifted to preparing them for the corporate world. Today when we speak to a group of law school students on campus, or elsewhere we hear the following:
“I want to become a corporate lawyer.” The words keep getting repeated while our polite enquiries extend to the person standing next. Until we reach the end of the circle where you don’t have to ask the question, the only one-word echo is “corporate”.
There is another picture when we speak to partners at law firms or businesses looking to hire law graduates and practitioners. They lament upon the absence of training, and their target shifts to the state of affairs of legal education. It is not just about the graduates and legal practitioners. We have even heard the same cyclic arguments for interns that they have taken or are yet to take.
From the above, we concluded that a) talent and enthusiasm are abundant for corporate law, b) there is demand for corporate lawyers and experts, and c) there is no place where this immense potential of corporate law enthusiasts meets opportunities. And so we decided to offer a course on corporate law with law firms and practitioners along with CAs and corporate advisors as the teachers. These teachers bring to the course practical knowledge that is vital for succeeding in the corporate world.
Many first and second years students often complain, “I don’t know anything about corporate law. How will I get an internship?” It is correct that one is not introduced to company law in the fourth semester or sixth trimester. Thus, there is no introduction to even the basics of company law. How will this person look for an internship in a firm dealing with corporate law? Also, why will any law firm look for an intern to whom a lot of training time is devoted? Instead of having some hands to help, one is required to extend a helping hand. Given this, fresh graduates looking for jobs don’t often know what to do at a law firm and find it hard to find someone to train them. It is only through luck that they may get assigned to a project that provides a learning opportunity or a senior who cares enough to train young graduates.
It is not only students in law school who have these legitimate grievances. Experienced practitioners, business executives, accountants and corporate advisors often don't know where to go to upskill themselves. It is hard for them to spare time to join a full-time residential course.
The above examples are only illustrative of the state of affairs. Business executives, legal practitioners, law students, in-house counsels, practitioners in law firms, accountants and corporate advisors need to know and continually upskill themselves to effectively manage today's large businesses and undertake complex transactions. Law students need professional training so that they are fit for the market and have a competitive edge. Hence we bring to you the Upskill Diploma in Advanced Corporate Law. With 70+ professional lectures, practical workshops and assignments, 550+ videos, reference books and reading materials this course will train one like no other.
What's different about the Upskill Diploma?
The EBC Learning Upskill Diploma is given for mastery in a particular practice-oriented field of law. The diploma is offered on completion of specific intensive courses in the given field. As part of the diploma, students undergo rigorous training in theory and practice. The theoretical teaching done through the lecture method ensures that the student knows the applicable law. But where knowing the law may be too cumbersome, where only an overview may be possible, we ensure that the student knows where and how to find the law. As they say, the objective of legal education is not so much that a person knows the law but that the student learns the legal method. This enables the person to find the law. The first level is then focused on knowing the law, and where that may not be possible, at least being able to find it.
The second and most crucial aspect of the Upskill Diploma is that we prepare the student to think and understand the reasons behind why the present law is the way that it is. How it can change? What are the loopholes? What arguments can be made? What may a court of law accept and which way are the law courts leaning? This intensive study of the ‘why’ and ‘what it could be’ is undertaken by a critical study of current judicial decisions. The second level of teaching in the Upskill Diploma ensures that the student can critically evaluate the law and come up with new innovative solutions to current legal problems for the client and even contribute to developing the law.
The next most essential component of the Upskill Diploma is the training in practical skills. What authorities must one approach? What form must one fill? What contracts must be drafted? It is the how, what, where? In classes aimed at the practical, we teach the student how to go about a particular task as required by a client. In sum, ‘how to do’ particular client-oriented tasks is the focus of these classes.
All in all, with the focus on all three areas (knowing, critiquing and applying), the Upskill Diploma truly ensures that one becomes a master in a particular subject. The level of discussion in our Upskill Diploma classes is both broad and deep. The sheer breadth of topics covered in the Diploma gives the law student the ability to look for solutions in different areas of law. But at the same time, the in-depth study equips the student to effectively execute any given solution for a client. The Upskill Diploma truly makes one a master.
