Law students to assist Gujarat courts

Indian Law students

The Gujarat National Law University has decided to send its fifth year students to the Gujarat High Court to assist the judiciary, Vice Chancellor Bimal Patel said Sunday.

The university will also send its fourth year students to various lower courts in Ahmedabad, Patel said.

The decision was taken after Chief Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya asked the university to continue rendering assistance to the state judiciary, after a successful experiment related to their training in courts last year.

Mukhopadhaya Saturday appreciated the student’s assistance in the functioning of the judiciary. He was speaking at the inaugural function of the university’s winter semester.
