The Peer Team was informed that this Sanstha was started in the year 1919 at Kale village looking into the unbearable social conditions and total denial of education to the Dalits and other backward class people in rural areas. Late Shri. Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil was taken aback when he saw a Dalit boy made to sit outside the classroom. This prompted him to go all out to help persons discriminated upon and who were denied the basic amenities of life. Motivated by this he went into the utmost backward of the rural areas including tribal areas, to open residential schools for them. This opened up the doors of education to all, irrespective of caste, religion etc. The Sanstha also started this law college to infuse the same spirit to the law graduates coming out of this Law College to serve the society in the true spirit of human oneness and equality.
The Peer Team carefully perused and analyzed the self study report submitted by the institution.

SECTION 3: OVERALL ANALYSIS
The Peer Team after going through the self-study report and its visit to various academic and physical facilities is impressed by the progress of Ismailsaheb Mulla Law College, imparting legal education through the TWO LL.B., COURSES. The institution has earned the reputation of imparting quality education and imbibing sense of discipline and dedication to the younger generation. In spite of it, the Peer Team considers that the institution has to do a lot more to fulfill the objectives of which it has been established. The Peer Team would therefore like to bring to the attention of the institution, certain concerns for its consideration.
The Peer Team would like to commend the institution for the following aspects.
The goals and objectives of Rayat Shikshan Sanstha and Ismailsaheb Mulla Law College are highly relevant to the Indian Society and its contribution to the field of education and social reformation is highly note-worthy and an admirable one.
Offering both the THREE YEAR LL.B., COURSE and FIVE YEAR LL.B., COURSE to the student of the region.
The practice of preparing 'Teaching Plans' and supplementing Lecture method by guest lectures, group discussions, question and answer sessions, assignment and tutorials.

Sports and recreation facilities provided to the students.
The assistance extended by the alumni for the professional training of the students.
Sharing of administrative responsibility by the faculty members through various Committees relating to different aspects of institutional functioning.
Keeping in view the future plans of the institution, the Peer Team would suggest the following to the institution to consider:
Compared to the strength of students, the strength of full time faculty members is less, which need to be augmented on a priority basis.
The Three Year and Five Year LL.B. classes should be conducted separately and not combined, as done at present.
There has to be a scheme for faculty development programmes on regular basis.
As far as the faculty members are concerned, the teaching and research should go hand in hand to enhance quality of education.
The institution is expected to assist the faculty members in their research activities providing necessary assistance such as, seed money, study leave, adjustment of work load, etc.,
Imparting quality education involves a continuing effort to make the students more and more capable and competent in the field. Hence, employment of modern technique of teaching, training with the assistance of modern equipment has become essential. There must be continuing effort to make the learning exercises effective, interesting and also pleasant.
Library needs to be added with more number of books. A Book Bank Scheme for the economically disadvantaged is a necessity. All the activities of the library need to be computerized.
Introduction of Self-Appraisal system helps in the systematization of academic instructions and faculty development.
Student appraisal about campus experience helps administration in identifying the areas of concern so that necessary remedial actions can be taken to improve the standard and quality of the institution.
Bridge / remedial courses, tutorials, counseling, etc., have to be on regular basis to help the educationally disadvantaged students and to improve the success rate.
There is a need to organized conferences / workshops periodically to provide an opportunity to the students and the faculty members to interact with the experts in the field. These activities help in motivating the students and staff.
Continuous internal assessment might be introduced to sustain the interest of students in learning though out the duration of the course.
Placement Cell and Employment Cell are required in the Law College also to assist the law Graduates to find suitable chambers of Senior Lawyers specialized in different areas of law and also to assist them in finding post of legal advisors / officers in commercial / industrial establishments and other organizations. Institutions may also help and encourage them to appear for competitive examinations of All India Services, as the knowledge of law is essential for effective administration.
Dropout rate being high which reflects on the image of the institution needs to be arrested by making necessary investigation and by taking the appropriate measures.
Linkage with National Law Universities and other reputed institutions may be considered.
Computer literacy has become essential in all disciplines. Hence, a suitable curriculum may be designed to give computer training to the students of law.
Special short-term courses may be designed and introduced to enhance the communication skills of students both in English and Local Language, to help the students to become more confident and competent. This may also help in arresting the drop out rate.
The Peer Team is of the opinion that this exercise will be useful to the institution to initiate quality enhancement strategies towards further growth and development.
