You are doing a wonderful job with your very informative website.
Dr. Kalpeshkumar L Gupta worked as Faculty Coordinator for Gujarat National Law University Legal Incubation Council (GLIC). Dr. Gupta worked under my supervision for GLIC and I have found him sincere, proactive and hard working person. He has undertaken many initiatives to promote startup culturre at GNLU and has played very important role in establishing GLIC. I also appreciate his ability to think out of box and multitasking skills for adding value to the functioning of GLIC.
You and your team is doing great service to the humanity by engaging yourself in legal aid and start up platform to needy people. The constitutional dream of access to justice remained unrealised because intellectuals, departments of academic institutions, and those who are "well to do" did not discharge their obligation in spirit, enshrined in the fundamental duty part. Prof Upendra Baxi also insists that we need citizen animated with part III and Part IV of the Constitution. You and Gujarat Law University has taken the lead and we all are proud of you. Though legal aid is also given in various institutes, legal start up is an innovation.
We all congratulate you and the team and wish you all the best.
Kalpesh has a great understanding of the problems plaguing the legal setup of our country. His initiatives to improve our leagal setup are inspiring and worth appreciating. The legal startup portal is a great initiative that aims to document various innovations being done not just in India but also around the world. I am sure this portal will be a great resource for all aspiring law/policy entrepreneurs and will inspire them to develop better interventions for our country. I congratulate Kalpesh for this idea and wish him and his team all success. Keep up the good work!
Significant developments in communication and information technologies are disrupting for and not for profit sectors of the economy and creating opportunities for innovative start-ups. The early signs of such disruptions are lurking in the legal sector as well. Indian legal education sector, practice of law and judicial system need to recognise them when time is still in their favour and respond appropriately. Dr. Kalpeshkumar Gupta from the Gujarat National Law University, Gandhinagar has taken the right step in this direction by creating a platform for legal start-ups. I congratulate him on this and wish him all the best in his endeavour. I hope that the initiative would be the harbinger of much needed innovation and enterprise in the Indian legal sector.
"Indian legal industry, judicial system needs radical change in its operation but there is a shortfall in this direction. It requires innovation in it through creating legal startups. Legal Startups in India is not as popular as in western countries. I must congratulate Dr. Kalpesh for his initiative to address the issue in strategic manner. Best Wishes for his endeavor"
Dr Kalpesh Gupta has always been doing something innovative in the field of law that helps common cause. A testament to this innovativeness is Probono-India. Continuing in this spirit, his latest initiative, Legalstartups has been born. I am sure it does a great job of aggregating information about legal start ups in India. I wish him all the best.
