With our Moto of Student First, we at Pakistan College of Law do not just focus on the academics of students but also their Career Development and Progression. We help in finding their career paths according to their individual talents and potentials. Furthermore, we encourage and facilitate our students to apply for summer internships after their first year onwards. This way they will gain work experience and have an awareness of what career paths and jobs will suit them. They will be more informed of employer and market requirements which will help them become more employable and excel in their careers. We also help them in applying for further education opportunities abroad and facilitate their Continuous Professional Development.
