Why Law At PESU

Being one of the oldest professions, law has come a long way from an apprenticeship to the multi-faceted mission It is today. There is no aspect of life today that law doesn’t visit. It is one calling which accompanies a person from cradle to grave and beyond! Naturally, legal education is accorded utmost priority globally.

We, at the Faculty of Law, PES University, are aware of the glory and responsibility of legal profession and have finetuned the nuances of legal education to suit the necessities of the modern-day litigation, corporate and intellectual property world. The curriculum is designed in consultation with the principal stake-holders, viz., students and the industry. We offer honours programs with specializations in the areas of corporate law and intellectual property law inter alia.

We are also taking initiatives to address the legal needs of the scientific community and we are wholeheartedly backed by the strong engineering and technological faculty of our university in this regard. In short, we are preparing our students not only for the present times, but for the intellectually conceivable future that may be dominated by AI and such other innovations.
