Gujarat Law Herald

Late Shri Girish D. Bhatt, Advocate and the Former Member of Bar Council of Gujarat and the Bar Council of India was the founder of Gujarat Law Herald (GLH). The First Law Journal of GLH was published in the year July, 1981 under the joint auspicies of the Bar Council of Gujarat and Ahmedabad Lawyers Benevolent Fund. It is one of the functions of the Bar Council of Gujarat to publish journals and papers of legal interest under the Section 6(1)(ee) of the Advocates Act, 1961 and that is how Gujarat Law Herald(GLH) came into existence. The Bar Council of Gujarat discharges the said function remarkably by publishing ‘GUJARAT LAW HERALD’ (GLH), which reports, landmark judgements laid down on different topics passed by the Hon’ble High Court of Gujarat and the Hon’ble Apex Court with acute promptness and accuracy. The head-notes of the judgements are published in vernacular language to help the mass. The Bar Council of Gujarat is the only council who publishes the law journal. Not only that, but the State Council provides the journal to its members at “No Profit No Loss” basis. The Bar Council of Gujarat also provides 50% discount on the subscription of the journal to its members. In the same way, the Bar Council of Gujarat provides complimentary copies to each and every bar association across Gujarat. The Bar Council of Gujarat is the only council who is not only publishing the paper journal but also the only council having “e-library software.” The Bar Council of Gujarat regularly distributes complementary law books and law journals to more than 270 registered Associations of Gujarat with an aim to provide regular legal education and up gradation to its Members. In the year 2012, the then Hon’ble Chief Minister of Gujarat Shri Narendra Modi sanctioned a grant of Rs. 2, 21, 00, 000 from the State fund to provide E-library, computers and printers to all the registered Bar Associations of the Gujarat.
