Library At A Glance

The Objectives of the College:

The Progressive Education Society’s, Modern Law College, Pune, 16 is based on two Latin Maxims “LexfacitRegem”, 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 “Ignorantialegisneminemexcusat”,
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.
