Seven GNLU students work for poll panel

Seven students from the Gujarat National Law University in Gandhinagar are currently providing legal research assistance to the Election Commission.

These students have been attached with the state's Chief Electoral Officer's office since November 1.

"Seven students are attached with us till the Assembly elections are over. We have given them various assignments such as looking at the way the model code of conduct is being observed, examining paid news and comparing our best practices with those in other countries. The tasks mostly have to do with legal aspects," said state's CEO Anita Karwal.

GNLU authorities approached the CEO's office with an offer to let some students provide legal research assistance and once that was agreed, interested students were invited to apply, according to the university's director, Bimal Patel.

Patel said that in the past, students have similarly worked with judges of the High Court, the State Human Rights Commission and even the International Cricket Council during the last cricket world cup.
