What were you doing before the MCL?

Prior to joining the MCL, I worked for three years as a corporate lawyer in one of the leading law firms in India. My practice areas included capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, regulatory and general corporate matters.

What were your impressions of the MCL?

The practical focus of the MCL course motivated me to apply for the programme. The MCL benefits from a niche focus in select areas of corporate law and from a small class size that facilitates interactive classroom discussions. The MCL’s choice of subjects, exemplified by the Organisation and Governance of Law Firms module, also provides insights into business not offered in traditional LLM courses. The efficiency and responsiveness of the MCL faculty, the top calibre of the instructors and the periodic sessions conducted by leading practitioners on practical legal issues all contribute to an informative and enjoyable experience. Overall, the MCL encourages students not only to think but also to think better within a congenial atmosphere.

What are your post-MCL plans and have they changed due to taking the MCL?

I intend to continue in private practice. I believe that the MCL experience and in particular, the insightful comments of my peers and instructors, have honed my technical and analytical skills and I hope to apply such skills on a continuing basis.
