Case Note / Description :

In the coming years, Institutions such as the Gujarat National Law University (GNLU) among others, must also act as incubators to train researchers and law teachers who can then implement meaningful changes in the numerous institutions in our country. On this point, I am happy to note that plans are afoot to start LL.M. and PhD. programmes at this institution. However, I would also urge that these research degrees carry a high degree of rigour. So far, the success of the various National Law Universities is largely on account of their autonomous administrative structure which enables flexibility in aspects such as curriculum design, evaluation methods and service-conditions. The dissemination of the best practices evolved at these institutions can perhaps help in improving the state of legal education as a whole. The National Knowledge Commission has also urged that we cannot rely on a few elite institutions to bring about whole-scale improvements in our legal system. Therefore, there is a compelling need to take on the triple mandate of strengthening the teaching, research and extension activities of the institution so that the benefits of a sound legal education can reach more people.
