I am B.Tech graduate (Mechanical Engineer) and Currently I am working at a Maharatna PSU serving the Nation for last four decades. While working as an engineer I see there are may legal complications be it related to contractual disputes with contractors, arbitration, labor law issues etc. and that made me think about studying law related to my field (corporate/business law and labor law) which would help in my current job (as a legal adviser) as well as help me grow faster in my career having a mixed background of engineering and law. As I work at project sites in remote areas I cannot attend regular courses while working and I Cannot leave my job as my family is dependent on me and my job. So I think distance learning is my way out in this situation. I request you to please suggest me best in class law colleges/institutes and courses related to my concern and their recognition. I would be very thankful to your for your help.
Waiting for early response.
