The DES’s Shri Navalmal Firodia Law College is based in the education hub of Pune in Maharashtra. It was established in 2004. The campus is located within the new academic complex of the renowned Fergusson College. That is why the complex has a modern functionalist look, covering 2 acres of urban land. The college is run by the DES which stands for Deccan Education Society, which was founded, way back in the 19th century, 1884 to be precise. The Fergusson College was also started by this group, a year later in 1885. The greatest of revolutionaries such as Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Gopal Ganesh Agarkar, Vishnushastri Chiplunkar, Mahadeo Ballal Namjoshi and Vamanrao Apte have been members of the DES.

It has been accredited by the NAAC (National Assessments and Accreditation Council), earning a B+ grade rating in it. A separate IQAC (Internal Quality Assurance Cell) has been created to this end, to ensure that all the terms of the NAAC are complied with. An AQAR (Annual Quality Assurance Report) gets generated to quantify the results. The legal courses here, are also ratified by the BCI (Bar Council of India). 

At the Pune- based DES’s Shri Navalmal Firodia Law College, courses are available at both the undergrad as well as the master’s levels. The UG programme may be pursued under both the five- year as well as the three- year modes. The former may be pursued immediately after school, while for the latter, a minimum of graduation is needed. The five- year programme is an integrated BA plus LLB programme, but the latter is a stand- alone one. The LLB of course is the standard degree offered to Common Law countries’ legal study graduates. At the post grad level, the two- year duration LLM programme is offered here. At this level, the studies get more specialized. This is the programme where research is highly encouraged.  

Admissions to these programmes is via the MAH- CET (Common Entrance Test), held across the different levels. Non- Resident Indians (NRIs) or foreigners need not apply to this exam, but may avail admission via the CAP (Common Admissions Process). A one- year evening course is also on offer known as the DTL or Diploma in Taxation Laws. This is primarily meant for working professionals, seeking a skill upgrade.
