"The course on Projects and Project Finance provided a great insight of the practice area. The course stood true to its description and is perfectly designed to equip the reader with the relevant practical skill and knowledge. As a student who has already interned with the Project Finance team, I would say this course discussed all the concepts in a wholesome manner and is useful for understanding the basics."

Saksham Sinha, Final Year Student, B.A.LL.B. (Hons.), National Law Institute University, Bhopal

"Law schools surprisingly do not have subjects like Projects and Project finance in their curriculum. This is where Skillxpro came to the rescue after lot of research. The course contains modules and the best part about this was that the Evaluation Test at the end of each module was quite challenging and that’s where I believe you learn. In fact, I got an opportunity through the platform to intern in the same field with a Corporate Law Firm which gave me a real insight of the day to day task which takes place. I was given tasks like research, mapping and as well I got to read the drafted documents like Intercreditor Agreement, Pledge Agreement, Common Loan Agreement, Rupee Term Loan Agreement and the situations under which they took place. Kudos to Team Skillxpro for providing me such a platform where I could learn a new skill in such unprecedented times of Covid 19."
