The changing corporate environment has brought into focus new perspectives of law as a career. Today law has provided multiple options to the students in corporate houses, law firms, NGOs, courts (litigation), regulatory bodies etc. This new dimension has completely transformed the monotonous nature of law as a profession. The corporate world has its measurable share in the recruitment of law graduates. The expectations of the corporate world are very high and keeping this in mind, placement cell was formed to bridge the gap between the student and the corporate world.
Pravin Gandhi Law College has a placement cell comprising placement executive, placement assistant, Faculty in charge and Student committee members. Placement Cell helps in providing opportunities for assessment internships and final placements in reputed organizations to eligible students.
In the past, some of the renowned business houses and law firms have recruited students from campus. In addition to final placements, the college actively encourage students to take up internships during summer and winter break with NGOs, regulatory bodies, corporates and law firms.
Placement record of the college is a proof of the confidence reposed by law firms/corporates in our students.
