Coordinator’s Message

Dear Students,

P.E.S. Modern Law College, under the able guidance of Prof Dr. Gajanan Ekbote and the Business Council of Progressive Education Society, the college is presently imparting legal education in Pune. Through persistent infrastructural enhancement and academic excellence, the college fosters societal needs for legal education.

The Progressive Education Society’s, Modern Law College, Pune, is based on two Latin Maxims “Lex facit Regem”, which stands for supremacy of law even over the king. The importance of law in the life of common man is such that even the framers of the law are not above the law for the time being in force. Further maxim “Ignorantia legis neminem excusat”, in the simple parlance means ignorance of law is no excuse. The legal system in our country is based on the principle and presumption that all the citizens are aware of law and expected to follow the same, in its letter and spirit. If the law is stronger than the king himself and the importance of law is such that every citizen is expected to know it, the importance of legal education for every person is beyond imagination.

I welcome you all for a wholistic learing experience at Modern Law College, Pune where the student is the nucleus of the college.
