Vivekanand Education Society's College of Law

About the Society and the College.

Vivekanand Education Society was founded in the year 1962 under the inspired leadership of Late Shri Hashu Advani.

It offers a wide range of courses from K.G to PG. Besides general education, several professional courses are offered.

It is the endeavor of the society to offer education in Law to contribute towards creating a competent workforce with requisite professional skills as it is the need of the hour, due to the declining value system and backlog of pending judicial cases. As Judiciary is the backbone of a strong democratic nation, it will be our institution's Mission to ensure the development of honest professionals with integrity, diligence and a national spirit.

Besides practicing Law as a profession, the knowledge of Law as a subject is also required for administrative & corporate jobs.
