The senior-junior culture of BDKM Law College, which is essentially a family relationship, is its greatest quality. When a new student enrolls in college, he looks for someone he knows.
He meets his senior mates, who help him, inspire him, and lift his morale in both good and difficult times. In BDKM Law College, senior mates encourage their juniors in any way they can and serve as a constant reminder of why they are there.
Senior mates at BDKM Law College have been great resources for their juniors. They help them with every completion like moot-court, and quizzes and they also share their experiences of internship or legal field.
