Jindal Global Law School (JGLS) part of the O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) has collaborated with four leading law schools and universities in the USA and Australia.

Moritz College of Law, Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA, USC Gould School of Law, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California, USA and Bond University, Australia.
“The legal profession as it stands today and the type of issues modern-day lawyers must deal with demand a transnational and comparative understanding of the law, and the perspective essential for developing such an understanding becomes possible only if we can situate the global within our domestic contexts. Herein comes the relevance of international collaborations,” professor C. Raj Kumar, founding vice chancellor, of O.P. Jindal Global University and dean, of Jindal Global Law School stated.
Reflecting on the possible outcomes of these collaborations, Smarnika Srivastava, assistant dean (International Collaborations), JGLS said, “These opportunities create an open academic environment and maximise the potential of our students and faculty alike, which leads to their professional and personal growth in a holistic way. JGLS has secured diverse international collaborations with countries all around the world. ”
According to a release, the collaborations are the latest addition to the existing 200+ international collaborations that Jindal Global Law School already has to facilitate student and faculty mobility, dual degree programmes, pathways to postgraduate studies and joint research opportunities.
