Course Electives

Students are offered a number of elective courses from their third year of study. These courses are often interdisciplinary, involving elements of law as well as other disciplines in social science and management. Successful completion of electives will lead to the awarding of credits, which are ascertained per elective, based on the number of instructional hours. For example, a three credit course will have atleast three hours of classroom lectures per week and one or more hours of tutorial instruction per week.

Further, a number of elective courses at the various schools of the University are open for cross-registration. For example, a student of the Jindal School of International Affairs shall may opt for a course on International Humanitarian Law offered by the Jindal Global Law School.
