Who Should Take This Course?

Legal professionals and students: The team at EBC Learning has designed this programme to enable a professional or a student to pursue a career in corporate law. The programme introduces the professional or a student to many practical aspects of corporate law practice in India. It is primarily a professional programme; however, law students can take the programme early on in their careers to get an edge over others and excel in internships. The course faculty are highly qualified practitioners who can help one build their corporate law practice.

Legal professionals practising any other branch of law may also take this course to re-orient themselves in corporate law. This course will provide the necessary tools and connections to start and grow your corporate practice.

Entrepreneurs: Today, compliance with corporate rules and regulations has also become a daunting task. Business strategy can be dictated and is often based on what is legally possible and required. Therefore it has become necessary for business professionals and managers to understand the fundamentals of corporate law. Right from how to decide on ownership-related issues, how to legally maintain a balance of power in the entity and then knowing how and what it takes to run it — this is all essential knowledge. If you are leading a startup, or managing a family business, or wish to expand and grow your business, knowing what the law provides is crucial. This course will provide you with the essential tools.

Corporate teams and in-house counsels: Given the rapid change in compliance requirements, very often in-house counsels of corporations are unable to get proper exposure and the necessary training in corporate law matters. In person re-training and upskilling can prove costly and often requires time off work. An online course with classes on weekends is the ideal solution. Business owners can use this course to train their teams in corporate law matters. In the programme you also make valuable connections with professionals across India, which can prove to be a crucial resource in times of need.

How Should One Approach This Course?

We have designed the course to make it as flexible as possible so that you may easily fit it in your schedules. The programme includes videos, texts and live lectures. To make the most of the programme, one is expected to watch the videos, and read the texts during the week — i.e before attending class on the weekend. In this way, you may watch and understand all the content at your leisure during the week and attend practical workshop-like classes on weekends.

Do note that you may find it hard to follow the workshop-like classes in case you have not pre-watched the videos that are a part of each course and read the pre-reading materials. The course also requires writing pre-class notes where you can comment on the readings and videos. The instructor uses these notes to address your queries in class.

Mode of Instruction & Class Timings

The live sessions will be conducted online, and courses will be available on the EBC Learning platform (

Session Timings: Afternoon & Evening Sessions on Saturdays.
