"With the highest number of students getting placed in top tier Indian and international law firms with an average package of Rs. 15 lakhs, the GNLU brand is firmly established. GNLU's emphasis on holistic development- teaching, research, extension and training, sustained by the GNLU faculty and staff, is paying a rich dividend to students. India needs highly skilled lawyers, legal advisers, researchers and I am sure GNLU will make the apt contribution to the nation's development agenda. I am thankful to my colleagues Dr. Nidhi Buch, Faculty Convener, Mr. Nimesh Dave, Internship and Placement Coordinator, and other faculty colleagues for achieving the highest-ever recruitment record.", said Dr. Bimal Patel, Director, GNLU.
"The build-up to Day Zero is taxing for students and faculty alike. However, the 2015-20 batch has handled this time with grace and poise. The batch has always impressed me with its firm grasp over foundational knowledge, coupled with an ability to meet challenges. This enables them to remain oriented in this time of unparalleled change and innovation in the legal industry. Having been a first witness to their dedication, I could not have been more proud of what they have achieved so far, and what is yet to come," said Dr. Nidhi Buch, faculty convener of the Committee on Recruitment Affairs.
