About the GCLS Blog

The GNLU Centre for Law and Society is the focal point for socio-legal research at Gujarat National Law University. It facilitates interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary research, including study and teaching of, law and society; law and legal institutions. The Centre encourages multidisciplinary perspectives to form analysis and debate on socio-legal issues, thereby providing the richest and most comprehensive approach to research and policy-making.  Our aim is to make our work easily accessible to professionals in government, business, or the law, and in so doing, to bridge the gap between academia and policymaking. We intend to bring together researchers and thinkers at our programmes, events and disseminate the analysis of leading decision-makers through briefings, reports, and multimedia presentations. Driven by creativity and curiosity, the Centre strives to fulfill its social, cultural and economic obligations to India and the world.

The GCLS Blog is an initiative to promote the interdisciplinary study of law and society. We welcome articles having contemporary relevance focusing on society, policy, and ideas attributing a study of legal institutions and framework in India.
