Principal's Message

Welcome to Gopaldas Jhamatmal Advani Law College (GJALC), one of the leading law colleges in Mumbai, which is considered as the place for high standards of education.

Hyderabad (Sind) National Collegiate Board (popularly known as HSNC Board) has been a pioneer in the field of higher education. This Board was managing the National College in Hyderabad (Sind) for a long time before the partition of India. The Board was associated with the national movement for the Independence of India. After the partition of the country in 1947, the members of the Sindhi Hindu community were compelled to abandon the place and migrate to India. Late Principal K.M. Kundnani was the Principal of the college at that time. After the partition, Principal Kundnani appreciated the need of his teaching fraternity and the community and initiated efforts for starting a college in Mumbai. He received active support and encouragement from Barrister Hotchand Gopaldas Advani. Both of them together founded the Hyderabad (Sind) National Collegiate Board in 1949, at Mumbai. Barrister H.G. Advani was the Founder President and Principal K. M. Kundnani, was the Founder Secretary and Principal of the first college started by the Board. This was followed by a chain of educational institutions belonging to various faculties such as Arts, Commerce, Science, Education, Law, Engineering, Technology, Paramedical and Management.

The Mission of the Board is to strive for excellence in academics, cultural, sports and other extracurricular activities. The Vision of HSNC Board is to provide education which is WORLD CLASS, COMPARABLE TO THE BEST OF THE INSTITUTIONS IN INDIAAND ABROAD. The HSNC Board established Gopaldas Jhamatmal Advani Law College widely known as G.J. Advani Law College in the year 1977, which is permanently affiliated to the University of Mumbai and recognized under Section 2(f) & 12(B) of University Grants Commission Act, 1956 and also recognized by the Bar Council of India, New Delhi for the teaching of 3 years Degree Course in Law (LL.B.).

The College is named after one of the leading advocates of Sind, Late Shri Gopaldas Jhamatmal Advani, who was a scholar and writer of a book titled as “Arbitration and Specific Relief Act”. He was also connected with many Educational Institutions in Sind as well as in Mumbai. We are proud to say that the College has established its reputation for a high standard of teaching in law. We are striving to make this College as a Centre of excellence in the field of Legal Education by adopting modern teaching and training techniques.
