When you think of a career in the field of law, what’s the picture that your mind frames? A dark, barely lit room with a stressed-out lawyer buried in paperwork – this is the image that our mind painted as well.
A career in the field of corporate and financial law, however, differs contrastingly. This domain deals majorly with solving disputes between parties at the pre-court stage, and has emerged as one of the most sought-after specialisations among aspiring legal professionals.
Understanding this, Jindal Global Law School, India’s #1 Law School* launched their LL.M. in Corporate and Financial Law program in a blended learning format, powered by upGrad, India’s largest online higher education company.
