  1. A big LOL is what i concluded with after reading this ! Ms. Sabne, being a recruitment committee head, you should not resort to such gimmicks ! Everyone knows , Amarchand or for that matter any other big law firm of its stature, would hire only NLS Grads. I am wondering who would be investing 37K for a six week diploma without any guarantee on the returns that this course is “supposed” to provide. It would be great if you enlighten us about the job opportunities available in the corporate sphere ( read AMSS ); though its highly speculative whether the course students would be able to secure even merely an internship !!
