About PGCL

Pravin Gandhi College of Law was established in the year 2004 by Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal (SVKM) to impart high quality legal education and to address the  societal needs and the needs of the  industry with the advent of globalisation. The college has been granted linguistic minority status for the Gujarati community.

Marcel Proust once said, “The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” This observation clearly enunciates the goals and objectives of SVKM's Pravin Gandhi College of Law (5 Year Course). The institution recognizes the fact that there lodges within the heart of every student that spark of creativity that, is the essence of singularity in every individual. Beginning from this premise, the college structures its learning programme in order to identify, hone in on and unearth this reserve of creativity. To this effect the college harnesses modern methods of teaching which encourage students to learn inside and outside the classroom. This institution provides the students with varied platforms to develop their skills; by way of debates at the intra and inter collegiate levels; Seminars, workshops, trial advocacy through moot competitions, the Juris-cine club, L'avocat an in-house student's newsletter which enables students to air their passionate concerns on issues, topical or otherwise, and innovative interactive methods of study in the classroom create an ambience that fosters intellectual growth.

This methodology intersects a legal education with a contextualization that embraces social, political and economic systems. An excellent faculty serves as a facilitator in helping students materialize this vision. It is this holistic approach to education that justifies the claim SVKM's Pravin Gandhi College of Law makes, of being a law college with a DIFFERENCE. For at the end of their voyage of self-discovery students emerge confident, positive thinking individuals, ably equipped to discharge their assigned roles responsibly on a world stage.

The College Library, with its vast and eclectic collection of books and journals, satiates the thirst for knowledge of both staff and students and gives utmost attention to the overall development of the personality of students.

Students are also encouraged to participate in co-curricular activities and sports. While ensuring academic and co-curricular facilities to a vibrant student community, the institution is conscious of its role as a constructive and responsible component of the larger society. Its consistent and unstinting efforts in this direction are borne out by the fact that students enter the college, young, immature, uncertain, bewildered, but leave its portals still young, but much more mature, self-confident and focused, ready to lead rich lives of their own even while enriching that of society.
