I welcome you to this website that will give you an overview of the institutions
managed by Gujarat Law Society.
With a history of more than eight decades, and with nearly 30 different institutions
under its management, Gujarat Law Society has become a leading learning hub in the
state of Gujarat as well as outside it. Our founding fathers envisioned a centre
for education that crossed the barriers of male and female, rich and poor, class,
caste and community. Set up with these values and ideals, GLS has imbibed the ideal
of excellence in education.
I am proud to show you, through this website, how this ideal has been translated
into reality at all the institutions of GLS.
Our foremost priority is to endorse a superior level of academic achievement. This
focus is evident in our excellent academic results at the Gujarat University and
Gujarat Technological University, across all streams. In fact, our colleges have
delivered record-breaking results over the past several years. Our NR BBA and GLS
BBA colleges have secured 10 out of 14 slots out of Top 10 ranks at Gujarat University’s
FYBBA examination 2012-13 and 34 out of Top 50 ranks, an unmatched feat that they
have been achieving for the last three years. Even for the courses of BCom, MCom,
BCA, MCA and MBA, the university toppers are invariably GLS students for the past
so many years and our students dominate the top rankers’ lists.
At the same time, we also know the value of holistic development, and this is evident
through the co-curricular and extra-curricular activities in which our students
excel. Sports, music, stage performances, intellectual activities, creative pursuits,
public speaking, moot courts, and so many other such events and achievements mark
out our students and institutions. Our S M Patel Institute of Commerce has achieved
unprecedented consecutive wins in extra-curricular activities at prestigious competitions
such as Josh, IIM Ahmedabad’s Chaos, Ahmedabad Mirror’s Talent Hunt,
Gujarat University Youth Festival, INT One-Act Play, to name a few.
It is such all-round excellence that has given national acclaim to several of our
colleges. S M Patel Institute of Commerce is the only commerce college in Gujarat
to have ISO 9000 certification and to be ranked among the top 50 Commerce colleges
in the country by India Today magazine. GLS’s focus on complete education
has been appreciated by industry too, as evidenced by the unmatched track record
of 100 per cent job placements at our MBA programme.
I invite you to browse through this website and share in the GLS experience.
The progress of the nation can only be sustained by the development of each citizen.
And the development of citizens cannot be separate from the availability and advancement
Gujarat Law Society, as a premier educational trust, was grounded and founded on
the principles of philanthropy, national development and dissemination of knowledge.
It was set up by personalities like Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Shri Ganesh Mavlankar
and Sheth Kasturbhai Lalbhai who had the fire of patriotism burning in their hearts,
and the depths of Indianness rooted in their souls.
It is this same fire that is fuelled in our hearts today as we attempt to walk in
their footsteps of service to education, service to the nation. With roots
of Indianness that have delved as deep as nearly four generations, GLS moves forward
with certainty and conviction, optimism and confidence. This is evident in the various
degree programmes and the many add-on courses run under its umbrella.
If you are a new-comer to GLS, this website will demonstrate how we are committed
towards the cause of excellence in education and the all-round development of each
student who enters our premises.
If you are a member of the GLS family, you will feel a sense of pride – as
I do – to see the myriad hues of GLS, the diverse ways in which our institutions
and the faculty members endeavour to give their very best to mould a world-class
Indian, and thus strive to create a better India.
Gujarat Law Society’s glory lies in its eight and a half decades of service
rendered towards the cause of education. It has developed as a nucleus for the education
and qualifying of thousands of students in varied fields of study. Right from kindergarten
up to Masters’ degrees and Doctorates, GLS has remained progressive in various
dimensions, thus contributing significantly towards the edification of the country.
With around 24,000 students and more than 600 staff and management members, GLS
has made its proactive presence felt in fulfilling the dreams of an independent,
magnificent India of tomorrow.
