Who Should Take This Course?
Legal professionals and students: The team at EBC Learning has designed this programme to enable a young professional or a student to pursue a career in M&A. The programme deals with many practical aspects of M&A practice in India. It is primarily a professional course. However, law students can take the programme early in their careers to get an edge over others, excel in their internships, and bag a PPO. The course speakers are highly qualified practitioners who can help one build their corporate law practice. It is a practice-oriented programme that you won’t get exposed to as a law student in a law school. Law students who want to kickstart their journey as transactional lawyers and looking for internships in M&A teams to increase prospects of pre-placement offers or placements must enrol in this programme.
For a young professional, it may be very daunting to be part of the transaction team, understand all the legal jargon, follow the deal negotiations, and be an efficient team member. This course is designed to help young professionals bridge the gap between what is taught in school and what is required of them as a young professional. This course gives an edge over your peers.
Legal professionals practising any other branch of law may also take this course to re-orient themselves in corporate law. This course will provide you with the necessary tools and connections to start and grow your corporate practice or switch to become a transactional lawyer with a law firm.
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 into your schedule. 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 (ebclearning.com).
Session Timings: Afternoon & Evening Sessions on Saturdays.
