"GNLU association with Law Colleges of Gujarat grow closer", Director Patel addresses Vivekanand Law College, Ahmedabad, Saturday, 5 December 2009.

In its efforts to enhance standards of legal education, research, training and extension activities, GNLU Director Shri Patel addressed faculty and students of Vivekanand Law College, Ahmedbad. While focussing on the topic of "Abuse of Public Interest Litigation" as now becoming more like Private Interest Litigation, Political Interest Litigation or even Publicity Interest Litigation, Director Patel outlined the main causes of abuse of public interest litigation. The abuse has spread in virtually every walk of life - human rights, environment, defence, education, etc. He emphasised and wondered whether the day has arisen which requires a special mechanism to deal with public interest litigations only.
Director Patel also outlined various measures taken by the Gujarat National Law University to bring all law colleges on one platform to achieve high legal education standards in the state. Some of the measures include; faculty exchange, library resource assistance, curriculum development, common law entrance exam, etc. Under the faculty exchange measure, GNLU will deliver at least two lectures in each of the law colleges of Gujarat and invite specialist from law colleges to address GNLU students on relevant topics of expertise.
Dr P. S. Patel, Principal, Vivekanand Law College thanked the GNLU for its efforts and reaffirmed the commitment of his law college to join the collective efforts deployed by all law colleges to achieve the higher standards of legal education in the state.
