About Our College
Our Yashwantrao Chavan Law College was established in June 1978. In the beginning, the college was known as A. B. M. S. Parishad’ s Law college. However, in the year 1987, in the memory of our country’s great visionary leader, Late Shri Yashwantrao Chavan, who rose to the height of Deputy of Prime Minister, the college was named after him, as a mark of respect and honour towards him.
The college has been receiving grant-in-aid from the state government. It has received the re-accreditation from NAAC. Our college is affiliated to Savitribai Phule Pune University on permanent basis and also recognized the Bar Council of India, New Delhi.
The College has its own spacious building which is located in the same campus of A B M S Parishad and which has been constructed as per the norms laid down the UGC. The building was inaugurated on 20th February, 2005 at the auspicious hands of Honorable Shri Sharadrao Pawar (Former Agriculture Minister, Government of India and the President of A B M S Parishad) in presence of Mr. Ajit Pawar (Deputy Chief Minister, Govt. of Maharashtra).
The college has kept before itself the goals of advancement and dissemination of knowledge of law and legal process in the context of national development. In accordance with these basic expectations, the college is striving to achieve excellence in the field of legal education and research. While imparting legal education, the college has kept a goal in view that the professional lawyers must be well equipped to perform the various roles which they are expected to in our society.
The college has completed its forty five years. Over the years, it has created a niche in the field of law education in the city. As everybody is aware, Pune city being the seat of learning and education, students from all over Maharashtra, particularly from rural area, and from the other states as well rush to this great city in search of homely atmosphere, where education is imparted to them. It is the vision of our Society and its various institutions to get these students into their fold and groom them for their professional excellence in various fields.
Our college thus provides not only professional excellence in the field of law education but also makes the rural students worthy of entering into the professional field. We make an excellent combination of the state-of-the art education as well as the deep rooted educational culture. Over the years, we have produced thousands of lawyers, who have gone back to their villages and tahsils for serving the society and running the profession successfully. Some of them have also joined as government services and the private sector. This is how our college is fulfilling its commitment of the noble mission.
