GNLU, Gandhi Nagar
Every college has its pros and cons gnlu is not an exception to this. If one wants huge salaries he may go for it but if one really wants to go for lawyering don't come here.
I took individual entrance exams for different nlu's and had different score for all coz at that time there was no common law admission exams(CLAT).I scored pretty decent in the entrance coz being a new nlu not many ppl opted for it and had a notion of it being a 3rd tier nlu. The reason i chose gnlu over other was that it was close to my home i.e ahmedabad. Secondly,i had an intuition that this nlu will do well in future. I guess i was the one that year who preferred gnlu over nalsar. Other point that i considered was related to fee, back then it was in managable limits.Dr. v.s mani was another reason, i thought why to miss a college having the godfather of international law.
Its amazing but for that one must keep interning at same law firm for a considerable time. Best way is to start from 3rd year till ppo's comes up.
Its rigid but then one can get student loans easily especially from corporation bank.Hostels are amazing plus the locality is awesome. Mess food is good but honesty back in 2007 it was best when we had jaisawal caterers. I secretly got to know that until
Alumni network is what that is helping gnlu to procure top placements.
Course was nice and faculties even nicer. But only problem lies with the management of the college they consider themselves as all and all of university plus director and staff being gujju others have very little say. Even faculties have to suffer because
Girls will be greater in number for some unknown reason. Parties are quite common. Cultural societies are full of politics and needs a lot of licking to get into. You will find students from across the country but again because of heavy gujju reservation( a new scheme adopted after 2008,i guess) quality has deteriorated a bit but still its above nlu-j. only discrimination is gujju v. non gujju, which is heavily present and preserved by some gujju faculties and its staff . But then not all the figures are equal. Even st students are discriminated a lot by director and his personal staff.Secondly director is not an competent person to hold this position. He's only llm in criminology(in european nations its allowed to pursue llm after having graduation in any social science subjects ) and was having pol sci during graduation. So you can presume how much law he knows.
Yes, internship and placement committee being an active group of student and faculties is doing a nice job. Most of time students working in this committee make personal contacts and get some cream for themselves. But they doarrange some good internships at times. But most of time its the students who arrange for themselves.
We had pentagram one of the best fest amongst the other nlu's.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
