Student Exchange

Study periods spent abroad not only enrich students' lives in the academic and professional fields, but can also improve language learning, intercultural skills, self-reliance and self-awareness. Their experiences give students a better sense of what it means to be a global citizen. In addition, many employers highly value such a period abroad, which increases the students' employability and job prospects. Staff exchanges have similar beneficial effects, both for the people participating and for the home and host institutions. 

In the wake of globalization, students from various countries have a lot to learn from other countries, their legal systems, through an academic-cultural immersion. Student exchange programmes help achieve that and much more. Logistically, student(s) from JGLS spends one (or two in exceptional cases) semester(s) in a partner university abroad, and earns credits in the host university, which fulfills the academic requirements at JGLS. The programme is reciprocal in nature, and therefore JGLS also accepts students from partner universities. The programme is also revenue-neutral for fee, and hence, students continue to pay for their tuition at home law school, but are responsible for their own travel and living expenses, except if they get a scholarship in two of our partner institutions. 

 

International Student Exchange Programmes

JGLS has established international collaborations with law schools around the world, including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Michigan, Cornell, UC Berkeley. Each year, eligible students to spend a semester at Universities across the globe including UC Davis, Indiana, Oxford, Cambridge, King’s College, Queen Mary, Brooklyn Law School, Mississippi College School of Law, FGV Direito Rio, FGV Direito SP Science Po, Singapore Management University, University of Southampton, University of New England, Leeds University, Tilburg University, Melbourne Law School, Tsinghua University, Bond University, East China University of Political Science and Law, University of Comillas, KOC University, School of Law City University Hong Kong, Temple University, Osgoode Hall Law School, University of Baltimore School of Law, EBS University, The Buchmann Faculty of Law Tel Aviv University, National Taiwan University College of Law, IE Law School, Queen’s University, Bucerius Law School, Esade Law School, University of Illinois.

These law schools from around the globe also send their students to study at JGLS for a semester as part of these student exchange arrangements. Study periods spent abroad not only enrich students’ lives in the academic and professional fields, but can also improve language learning, intercultural skills, self-reliance and self-awareness. This experience gives students a better sense of what it means to be a global citizen. In addition, many employers value such exposure, which increases the students’ employability and job prospects. In some cases, credits earned during the exchange semester may count towards an LL.M. degree pursued after graduation at the same institution. The programme is highly subsidized from the perspective of an Indian student since students continue to pay for their tuition at home law school, and only bear costs of travel and living expenses abroad
