GNLU Litigation Assistance and Support Scheme (GLASS)

The aim of the GNLU Litigation Assistance & Support Scheme (GLASS) is to incentivize and support brilliant students who opt to join the Bar despite other lucrative career opportunities. Gujarat National Law University strives to provide a head-start to such aspirants along with contributing quality advocates to the Bar and to the Society.

In order to incentivise greater number of students with exemplary academic and extracurricular records and a demonstrable interest in litigation, GNLU will provide assistance to graduating students who demonstrate potential to be an asset to bar and society.

GLASS commenced with the class of 2015. Five meritorious students were selected after rigorous procedure and the financial assistance of 7500/- was paid to them for a period of one year. This scheme is hugely appreciated by practitioners as well as parents. With class 2016, GLASS offered Rs.15,000/- per month to selected 10 students and with class 2017, GLASS financial assistance of Rs.15,000/- per month offered to 15 selected students. Thus, we were successful in not only enhancing the number of recipients but also the monthly financial assistance from 7500/- to 15000/-.

Testimonials from GLASS Recipients

With a dream to be a practicing advocate in Delhi, managing my finances in the beginning was the biggest issue. The freshly pass out law graduates don't get paid much as it increases gradually. When I got selected for GLASS, it was the deciding factor for me to moving to an entire new city and start from the scratch. GLASS is helping me out every month and I couldn't thank GNLU enough for being this amazing and thoughtful way to help us out. Thank you.

'GLASS', GNLU Litigation Assistance and Support Scholarship, has lived to the true sense of its words. It is not just about monitory assistance that it provides but it also provides huge motivation to take up litigation as a career despite of the struggle involved in the field. The sense of independence that gets inculcated due to such support is immensely helpful in building a budding lawyer's confidence. GNLU has acted not less than a parent supporting its child in the initial struggle of his/her career. GLASS is truly a noble endeavor and I am grateful to my University for such unique policies for its students.

Vishwa Bhatt

As a law student aspiring to join the practice of law, the one thing that always worried me was the financial difficulties of a litigating lawyer in the initial years. That has been taken care of through this initiative by GNLU. GLASS has been a major boost in my career and am sure that it will motivate even more students to take up the practice of law.

At the very outset, I would like to express my gratitude to the University and our esteemed Director Sir for undertaking this project and initiating this litigation assistance scheme. It can be said that Judicial Notice can be taken of the fact that the dearth of finding decent remuneration in the field of litigation is a major reason behind students not opting for Litigation. This litigation assistance scheme has immensely aided me in opting for litigation and helping me concentrate upon working hard rather than pondering upon the fact as to where the next pay day is going to come from. The monthly sum received from GLASS has helped me in paying for my travel and other ancillary day to day expenses. GLASS is one of the main reasons because of which I can proudly say that I have been independent from the day of starting of my employment and did not have to depend on my parents for my expense. GLASS has been immensely helpful to me.

Nishant Patel

My Parents have always encouraged and allowed me to follow my heart and do what gives me joy. I am the first generation lawyer in my family. I firmly believe that litigation was my first love and it remains so, and GLASS strengthen me financially through which I can smoothly work to achieve my goal. "The field of law is amazing to me, how with proper knowledge of penal codes and ethics, one can negotiate the legal system to accommodate people's individual needs, the chance to make a difference in people lives, the entire community is exciting to me. This is how I can make a difference. I am practicing law not for pre-conceived notion of prestige or status, but to ensure social justice is enforced, maintained or corrections made that influence the outcome for people in need of legal assistant." Furthermore, it was a great learning experience academically at eminent Gujarat National Law University and interact with law graduates from across the world. For this I would like to thanks GLASS programs, it's really very boosting to the beginner lawyer. And I also would like to thank to all staff of University for their constant support.
