CfP: The CBCL Blog by NLIU Bhopal: Submissions on Rolling Basis

About CBCL

The Centre for Business and Commercial Laws (CBCL) was established in 2008 at the National Law Institute University, Bhopal (NLIU) as a ‘Centre of Excellence’, with the aim of generating awareness and facilitating research in the field of business and commercial laws.

Recently, the Centre in collaboration with Trilegal organized the inaugural edition of the NLIU-Trilegal Summit on Corporate and Commercial Laws on the 24th and 25th August 2018. The previous three editions of the Summit focusing on key issues pertaining to mergers and acquisitions, in 2016, 2017 and 2018 were a resounding success, witnessing submissions and participation by law students from across the country.

With the help of the aforesaid initiatives and events, the Centre seeks to provide avenues for the students to explore the realm of business and corporate laws and develop the foundations required to be successful practitioners in the field of commercial and business laws.

About the CBCL Blog

The CBCL Blog is run by the Centre for Business and Commercial Laws (CBCL) with the aim of generating awareness and facilitating research in the field of business and commercial laws. We invite submissions from students and practitioners on contemporary issues relevant to the areas of corporate law, securities law, insolvency law, banking law, capital markets and securities law, arbitration law, competition law and taxation law.

The CBCL Blog has arguably become one of the most coveted forums for discussion and dialogue on aspects of commercial laws in India. Recently, The CBCL Blog has collaborated with the Law School Policy Review (LSPR) to launch the “KAIZEN” series which seeks to focus on corporate governance and its related aspects.

The posts under the “KAIZEN” series analyse recent events relating to corporate governance whilst discussing the way forward for corporate governance in India. Over the course of the next several weeks, we will be posting a number of such articles and invite all our readers to contribute their thoughts on this theme. The link to the CBCL – LSPR Series: “KAIZEN” can be found here.

A Fail-proof 6 Step Method

  1. I fail to understand, If an inquiry is being conducted at the prestigious National Law Institute University, for such a serious and grave context and circumstances. Where about 400 students have been falsely implicated by the University for forgery.
    – The University, Registrar Ms. Giribala Singh, faculty members, Admin staff, including the newly appointed VC, has breached the Hon’ble High Court Order, by giving, information, particulars, with a high degree of specificity and details to a Third Party. Even Mr. Gohil couldn’t keep himself away, or refrain from Media. Ms. Giribala Singh, never hesitate in sharing details of students, with a high degree of specificity with the Media and Third Party.


    1. What is the Motive of NLIU in indulging and engaging in this very exercise.

    2. What happened to the moot questions raised to the University, during Strike in 2016.

    3. Mr. Gohil I suppose, is doing something, called as Auditing of the System in Place and recommending for corrective measures.

    4. There is a rumour floating, created by some Alumni who have vested Interests, that degree would be revoked of about 400 students. Due to this, the students are living in fear and this inquiry has inflicted psychological impact on them. The University should have arranged for Psychosocial counselling for such students, a lesson to be learnt, from famous Vyapam case, when students committed suicide and some were murdered and bodies were found in mysterious conditions.


    What kind of Inquiry is happening, when the registrar and the Investigator based the inquiry on hunches and rumours.

    The investigator and the Registrar is giving specific details to the Media, thereby breaching the confidentiality of the Investigation process that forms the bedrock of any investigation.

    The Registrar is making her own CV, whereby she is giving specific details of investigation to third party and media, and seeing her name being published in local newspapers. On the Other hand the Investigator is minting money out from the pockets of state tax payers.

    On the other hand, the Registrar is giving names of students in Newspaper, defaming the student and ignoring presumption of innocence.

    The entire investigation exercise is incriminatory and punitive instead of any administrative finding.

    The registrar and the investigator are not gender sensitive, when they publish names of women students, highlighting specific instances of such students. The Registrar is a good story teller.

    Both Registrar and the investigator have usurped their power conferred to them by the High court.

    They both have maligned the name of the university.

    The council members are also biased, when some of the council members childten were former students. By doing so, they have shown biasness and assumed innocence on their part.

    Instead the implicated students must unite and question the administration about the motive of the inquiry being held, and refute for inquiry for the wrong committed by the University. This is the result of maladministration and incomptent faculty members.
