To foster a collaborative research culture, JGLS has witnessed growth of two jointly run research centres, that work on cutting edge issues on law and policy, that fall under their domain:
The Centre is a joint undertaking between the University of Michigan and JGLS. The Centre is first of its kind and aims to enhance our understanding of the regulation of financial markets and corporate governance in the US, India and elsewhere while at the same time facilitating research, policy analysis and scholarship in these areas. Recognizing the intractable connection between the practice and academic study of finance regulation and corporate governance, he Centre proposes to reach out to the practicing Bar in India and elsewhere, developing materials and planning events that will be useful for real world practitioners. The Centre is dedicated to promoting research and dialogue that will provide a deeper understanding of how this broad area of law impacts India’s economic and social prosperity within a global context.
The Centre has published a number of documents on topics ranging from infrastructure financing to Indian mining regulation. It has also organized important conferences on topics such as corruption and foreign investment, competition law, and comparative corporate governance. Co-director: Professor Vikramaditya Khanna, Professor, Michigan Law School; Assistant Directors: Professors Charles Maddox and Vaiji Raghunathan
JGLS has undertaken one prominent programme that aimed at capacity building of various stakeholders: Mid-career Training Programme for Indian Police Service (IPS) Officers (with Cambridge University). This programme is now being offered in association with JSIA. The programme is the first of its kind in India. Cambridge University chose to collaborate with Jindal Global Law School in view of the latter’s special strength. Importantly, it has established a Centre for Penology, Criminal Justice, and Police Studies.
This training involves Cambridge-bound IPS officer trainees spending some weeks in JGU’s ultra-modern and fully equipped residential campus and undertaking training modules on crime prevention from JGU’s own in-house professors and some expert guest speakers. The agreement between Cambridge and JGU cuts the overall programme costs of hosting and training the IPS officers for a few weeks and also brings in the added values of crucial India- relevant knowledge-based policing content via JGU to the trainees. So far, three batches of around 300 senior IPS Officers have been trained under the Training Programme for the IPS Officers.
The Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India has awarded the contract for training two more batches of Mid-career training programme IV for IPS Officers to the Cambridge University and the O.P. Jindal Global University.
