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.

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

I joined the NUJS diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws while I was working with the Calcutta Stock Exchange. I had already done my LLB and was looking for a course which would give me some practical insight. I came across the NUJS Diploma in Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws while searching the internet. I was looking for some course for value addition to my profile and knowledge. I had already done my LLB and MBA but wanted some practical knowledge. This course appealed to me, as it was dealing with business laws and I was working with a corporate. So this course was very significant to me and covered things which were relevant to me.

Sumit Sengupta

CFA, LL.B, Legal Counsel, Calcutta Stock Exchange

All modules in this course are meticulously designed with the emphasis on practical knowledge and it's very difficult to say which module was more informational than the other. Still, I particularly found the modules on statutory compliances, due diligence, business structuring and institutional financing to be really beneficial for me because I wanted practical insight into these topics. Non-lawyers such as businessmen are usually afraid of legal jargons that are found in books; however, this course uses a very simple and easy to understand language and therefore I recommend this course to all those who wish to enhance their business law knowledge.

Harshal Joshi

Legal Head, Legal Dog, LL.C

This course is something that would simply catalyze the process and help you in creating the best path for yourself. Being armed with a diploma in law from a prestigious national law school in itself speaks volumes – it gives the signal to the people working with you that your understanding of legal and regulatory situation should be and can be taken seriously. Given the kind of work I'm into, it does help a lot indeed, especially as one climbs the stairs of seniority and responsibility. The early headstart in legal strategy making and insights into dispute resolution is also a superb advantage.
Also joining the course has given me a new fraternity. It indeed feels great to have been associated with iPleaders…and I would be glad to continue with this relationship. I continue to get professional support from them. You can always reach out to the alumni or iPleaders founders themselves and ask for a favour.
I would strongly recommend this course to people (age no bar, beyond fulfilling the eligibility criteria) who are interested in bringing out something new (in any form) which shall be innovative and meaningful in the long run, and those who are interested in organization building – as the course helps in minimizing the number of legal and strategic hurdles that one may face after taking the plunge. You will be much more educated and smart with respect to a whole range of things once you even go through the course even partially.

Definitely student entrepreneurs studying in college will get a lot of benefits from this course. Interested students will be motivated like me to pursue their entrepreneurial journey keeping balance with various entrepreneurship network system, they can easily create a successful business venture without any hindrance.
