I am a computer science engineer by education, but an entrepreneur by profession. Having had no formal education in running a business I was always led to a lot of “learning the hard way”. When iPleaders launched the course for Entrepreneurship Administration and Business Laws, in an e-learning mode I took up the course with the objective to understand all legal nuances related to running a business. The course covered things like; understanding of ESOP, Sweat Equity, Company Policy, License agreements, IP related law, EULA and lots of other content which made sense for our business.

I am a practicing Cyber lawyer in Mumbai for the past 3 years and have founded Cyberjure Legal Consulting. The course was a very good learning experience, and I am glad I did it. It helped me understand the nuances of many laws which we studied in college, but never went into practical applicability of the same. The stuff I learnt in the course helped me in my matters too, and in structuring e-commerce start-ups.

You must have heard of “coursera” or “edX” or “Udacity” or a similar website. These websites are the pioneers in the field of massive open online courses. A massive open online course is an online course available to a large number of people, free of cost. These courses are available in almost every field like engineering, law, music, medical etc.
You must have heard us going on and on about online education in this blog. It makes knowledge more accessible, learning easier, and allows even busy professionals to continue college education in areas of their choice. It is much cheaper than traditional education, sometimes even free. It is often hailed as the future of education, though it is yet to be widely adopted.
What we have here is an impeccably polished social theory, though this can perhaps never be justified owing to the impossibility of collecting empirical evidence in support of this. It all started in 1943 when Abraham Maslow forwarded a certain idea in his “Theory of Human Motivation”.
When we saw several government officers taking up the NUJS business law diploma course which was intended at entrepreneurs and managers, we were quite stunned. Naturally, we tried to analyse their career goals and professional objectives. Why would they want to learn business laws?
