About Priyadarshani Dnyan Prabodhini Sanstha

Introduction :

Advocacy is a noble profession and an advocate plays an important role in the administration of justice. If the advocate presents the case properly, the court can interpret the case effectively and deliver pure and impartial justice. Therefore, it is said that " Bench and bar are the two wheels of the chariot of Justice." In human life, literacy is most essential. Similarly, legal literacy is equally essential. So, every one must not only be literate but also legal literate. The great leaders of our country namely, Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar etc. were all lawmen and may be because of this reason, they were able to achieve the ideals and goals enshrined in our constitution. In view of the great importance of legal education, Priyadarshihni Dnyan Prabodhini Sanstha has come forward to dedicate an institution of legal studies for upliftment of legal education in the rural areas of Maharashtra.
