JGLS has inked historic MOUs with prominent American universities to establish dual degree programmes. Through these programmes, students will be able to earn an LL.B. (or a B.A., LL.B.) from JGLS and a J.D. from the partner American University, in as much as two years less time than it would otherwise take, if they were to pursue these degrees sequentially. This reduction of two years does not in any way affect the rigorousness of the course, and students get two separate degrees of LL.B. and J.D. in four years (and B.A., LL.B. and J.D. in six years). This is done through extended exchange frameworks and credit transfers.
The two universities with which we have this arrangement have also offered substantial scholarship to the first batch of JGLS students who have already gone to pursue their J.D. programme. The law schools are:
- Indiana University Bloomington Maurer School of Law
- University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law
Another interesting degree programme has been initiated with University of California Berkeley Law, whereby JGLS students can pursue Professional LL.M. from Berkeley, by attending the classes organized in summer months. This will enable an LL.B. student (or a B.A., LL.B. student) to attend the classes in summer months for three consecutive years, and earn a Berkeley LL.M. at the end of their LL.B. (or B.A., LL.B.), thereby earning basic and post graduate law degree, from India and USA.
