    Dear student,

    The course of Post Graduate Diploma in Law (PGD in Law) is not offered at Apex University, Jaipur. The university provides law programmes of the undergraduate and postgraduate levels only. If you meet the eligibility criteria for the programmes of LL.B or LL.M at Apex University then you can apply for admission to these programmes instead.

    If you seek a good law college in Rajasthan that offers PGD in Law, you can check out Raffles University which is located in Neemrana. There are other law institutes in Rajasthan that prove diploma in law and are quite recognised and popular.

    In order to find the best college for yourself, fill the Common Application Form (CAF) and get a chance to apply at multiple colleges with just one form. Upon the successful submission of the form, you will also be assigned an admissions expert who will contact you and understand all of your requirements. Based on your preferences, he/ she will give you the options of some of the best law college for you to take admission in.
