What are the career opportunities available post an LL.M. in Corporate & Financial Law?
The program is tailor-made for legal professionals seeking to work in top-notch legalfirms or corporations in India and around the world. Some examples include:
In-house Legal Counsel At Top Corporations & Conglomerates: In the last few decades, India has witnessed a multi-pronged expansion of its markets and industries. This expansion has resulted in a growing economy, comprising several public and private sector enterprises operating in various markets and industries. These enterprises and companies require specialized in-house counsel who can help navigate the company through the tricky legal waters of mergers & acquisitions, commercial transactions, corporate and financial restructuring, risk assessment, and strategies for financial growth stability.
Roles In Top-notch Corporate Law Firms: With a number of large Indian corporations and conglomerates blooming in India, and MNCs setting up shop here, there is a greater demand for outside legal advice and expertise. Hence, law firms play an intrinsic role in today’s day and age, particularly large firms which have multiple specializations, as well as boutique firms which focus on niche areas of legal practice. The high-demand specializations and areas include mergers and acquisitions, law of banking, corporate insolvency, competition regulation, foreign investment, and private equity. The cutting edge curriculum offered by this LL.M. program aims to bring learners at par with the mindset, rigour, and demands of working in these specialized roles in law firms.
Roles In Policy Think Tanks And Advising Governmental Institutions: The program will also prepare learners to focus on specialized areas of research, often required of public policy professionals tasked with preparing drafts and comments on laws and amendments in the fields of corporate law, banking & finance, insolvency, investment and competition regulation.
Apart from our curriculum, the interaction with our world class faculty, JGLS’ strong alumni and industry presence, and upGrad’s 360 degree career support will help learners prepare themselves for these dream roles.
