Going beyond the classroom

Conference

Informed : Staff and students at the talk.

The students say the experience they got during the conference was one of the best.   
The growing corporate sector prompted the students of the Law School, under the guidance of the partners Luthra and Luthra, to begin the conference in 2009.

The conference aims at providing key insights into reigning economic and legal issues in the coming years, through an interface between leading lawyers from across the world, bankers, policy makers, financial advisors and business leaders, to enable the legal and corporate sector to face challenges in a better way. The prime focus of this concept is to provide an industry-based perspective on corporate affairs.

Among the leading law firms that were present at the conference were: Amarchand Mangaldass, Rainmaker and O'Melveny and Myers LLP. “The conference had erudite discussions on legal issues that have the potential of changing the face of corporate affairs in the country,” explains Rishi, a student of NLS.

And this session was chaired by Salman Khurshid, Minister of State for Corporate Affairs. The debate and discussion will extend to cover topics such as the Companies Bill, the challenges before the mergers and acquisitions in the country, the state of capital markets in India, foreign investments and project finance and infrastructure.

Talking about the conference and how it benefited the students, Varum Mathew, a final
year students says, “Most of the issues were talked about in detail. They were current topics, most of what we are aware about. It was interesting to see big names in the industry battle it out on a particular topic. The conference surely took us beyond textbooks and classroom knowledge.”

Harshvardhan Singh, another final year student who was also part of the organising committee says the students got to interact with all the high profile lawyers from across the country. “We will surely be working in one of these law firms someday. In that sense of the term, the conference did well in giving us a feel of what it would be like out there in the real world,” observes Harshvardhan.
