Congratulations to the Legal Services Committee, GNLU for completing 10 years in providing legal services to various sections of society, particularly the poor and the needy. I also convey my best wishes to the Committee for its second edition of the Annual LSC Interlinking Forum on ‘Access to Legal Services.’
Legal aid plays a vital role in empowering the disadvantaged sections of our society. Every citizen of India must have the right to a fair trial and in this context, legal aid assumes great importance.
Legal aid makes the judiciary a lot more approachable to the poor. In this light, what the youngsters in the Legal Services Committee, GNLU are doing is commendable.
In addition, I would like to congratulate the Gujarat National Law University (GNLU), Gandhinagar for establishing itself as one of India’s foremost National Law Universities and raising the bar of legal education in India.
