VP Shintre & Associates, Advocates, conducts online Study Circle sessions every Saturday at 11 AM. The Objective of these sessions is to increase awareness on various legal topics. The sessions shall be of benefit to lawyers and students of law.

Adv. V.P. Shintre, alongwith Adv. M.P. Bendre, started Study Circle sessions for the Pune based legal community around 1985. These sessions were conducted in the Men’s Bar Room of the Pune Bar Association. Subsequently, the baton was effectively carried forward by Adv. Vaishali Bhagwat and Adv. Pramod Bendre.

As part of the evolution of this initiative, we plan to conduct these Study Circle sessions online.

We look forward to participation and engagement in these sessions by the legal fraternity.
