Director's Message

Dr. Shashikala Gurpur

Director, SLS Pune

The creation of Symbiosis Law School, Pune, as a keen community which would strive for not only academic excellence but more importantly to nurture individuals who are willing to better the world with their enhanced skills, has been a successful venture. With a hard-working student body and dedicated faculty, the institution has built a nest of teeming legal minds. The labours of vibrant alumni and an irreplaceable staff contributes to each effort that Symbiosis undertakes to create an environment that supports notions of justice and universal welfare.

The spirit of innovation and sustainable development runs through the veins of SLS, Pune, and the ideals of a globalised development innate in the very vision of the institute has led to each batch forming a unique community of intense intellectual exchange.

The dynamic nature of the workforce in every avenue of law is reflected in the manner our curriculum transforms in order to adapt for the morphing career paths that each member of the SLS family shall tread on. It has been this understanding of the world’s transient nature that has led our alumni to earn accolades in the legal field, government, non-profit organisations and corporate industries.

While our students walk through the rigorous courses handpicked for each batch, they learn to not only be good lawyers but better human being who find contentment in the field of law, one that has aimed at bettering lives of the unfortunate. While rankings are mere numbers, it creates an impetus within us to constantly strive for what the institute stands; global understanding and best legal practices. Thus, the students of the 2020 batch are more than well-prepared to take on the tasks and challenges the world has to offer and create another legacy for both Symbiosis Law School, Pune, and themselves.
