The Chief Guest of the occasion was Ranjan Gogoi, Chief Justice of India.

He congratulated everyone present and especially mention his teacher Professor Upendra Baxi Dean, Faculty of Law for his success.

He advise the new graduates to remember always “that there are no shortcuts in life” and to not let their minds influenced by the corporate. He said that “A lawyer’s mind is open, hence urged them to keep their minds open.”

The University congratulate 13 old students for the various accomplishments like success in Civil Services and Judicial Examinations, and acquiring Fellowships to reputed International institutions.

Many news reports also claimed that the topper Surbhi Karwa (LL.M) has skipped the convocation as she was protesting against the way the court handled the sexual harassment complaint of one of its former employees against the Chief Justice.

In response to few news reports claiming that one of the toppers skipped the convocation to protest against the Chief Justice, the university has termed it to be ‘incorrect’.

As a university, we are highly concern over this issue as it had caused an unnecessary inconvenience to the CJI (Ranjan Gogoi),” the Vice-Chancellor of NLU said in a press statement.
