Present day legal education is not profession oriented. Realizing this ground realities BCI has evolved corporate edged professional courses, such as B.B.A., LL.B., and B.Com. LL.B., etc. These courses are tailor made for those who are opting for Company Secretary Career. Obviously 70% of course content is law based and remaining is commerce based. Realizing the potentiality of these new educational trends in legal education we have started B.B.A., LL.B and with this training course in CS.
ICSI (The Institute of Company Secretary of India) is a professional body established by the Act of Parliament to develop and regulate the profession of company Secretaries. The Companies Act, 2013 necessitated that every listed company and every other public company having paid up share capital of Rs 10 crores or more to appoint the company secretary in whole-time employment. [sec. 203] So now the scope for C S has enhanced.
The company Secretary is responsible for the efficient administration of a Company particularly with regard to the ensuring compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements and for ensuring that decisions of Board of Directors are implemented. Thus Pursuing CS with LL.B., (Specially BBA., LL.B) is the best choice for present generation because CS on a macro level, pertains to Corporate and Securities Laws and some of the subjects of CS and LL.B., (BBA., LL.B also) are complimentary and gives indept knowledge to the students pursuing Company secretary. So we encourage our students to pursue CS along with BBA., LL.B., and as a part of this organized training classes for Foundation Programme. There is a plan of starting classes for Executive Programme from next year.
The college is an ideal venue to start this course due to
- Excellent and state of art infrastructure and learning resources within same campus for both legal and commerce subjects
- Vibrant Faculty members from commerce and law
- Faculty members experience in company secretary examination programme
- The college is only one venue in South Canara to hold company secretary exam in June and December.
