The Objective of the college

Progressive Eduaction Society’s Modern Law College, is founded on the maxims of ‘Ignoranti Juris neminem excusat’ and ‘ Lex facit Regem’. The Legal System in our country is based on the principle ‘Ignorantia Juris neminem excusat’ (Ignorance of Law Excuses no one), which is the presumption that all the citizens should be acquainted with law and are expected to follow the same, in its letter and spirit.

One of the reasons for the above principle, besides social obligations is depicted in the vision statement of the PES MLC. The strength of legal education is also found in the maxim ‘Lex facit Rege m’ (law makes the King) If the law is stronger than the king himself, the significance of law and legal education in the life of a common man is of utmost importance.

Thus, we can see that, Progressive Education Society established Modern Law College, Pune with a vision to provide quality based legal education.
