The University of Georgia School of Law has just signed an agreement launching a partnership, to be administered by our Dean Rusk International Law Center, with the O.P. Jindal Global (Institution of Eminence Deemed to be University) Law School in Sonipat, India.
Partnership activities are set to begin with a semester-long, bilateral student exchange in Fall 2023. To be added over time are faculty exchanges, collaborative research programs, seminars and workshops, and outreach initiatives.
Also in the planning stages are several dual-degree offerings for Jindal Global Law School students, including a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree or a Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree, obtained through study at Georgia Law, in addition to degrees earned in India.
Launched in 2009, O.P. Jindal Global University is a nonprofit global university established by the government of the Indian State of Haryana, and recognized by India’s University Grants Commission. The QS World University Rankings named it India’s top private university the last three years in a row
The new partnership joins others already under way here at Georgia Law, with institutions including Bar-Ilan University, Tel Aviv, Israel, and KU Leuven University, Leuven, Belgium.
