This time around, it is the Gujarat National Law University finds itself at the receiving end of a stinging rebuke by the Gujarat High Court. In a judgment delivered yesterday,  Justice ZK Saiyed has described GNLU as, amongst other things, the “epitome of injustice”.

The High Court Judgment says that Bimal Patel has turned GNLU:

“into an oligarchy where all decisions are taken, reviewed and implemented by a select few, and students are casually denied basic human rights and natural justice”.

GNLU has also been the only established national law school to distort and hide its placement statistics, was widely panned for ‘fleecing’ Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) aspirants with a non-refundable Rs 10,000 administration charge when it was in charge of “shoddily” organising the CLAT in 2014, having made a mess of the results and answer keys.

Patel’s also saw controversy after apparently trying to bury a criticalreview report of the college by a committee headed by NLSIU Bangalore founder NR Madhava Menon, claiming that a third member had not produced his findings yet.

When those findings were eventually produced, Patel called a press conference and claimed they were all positive, and his term was renewed, though he did not publish a full version of those findings.
