I have great pleasure in welcoming you to explore and apply for admission to the Jindal Global Law School (JGLS).
Starting in 2009 with a humble beginning of 10 faculty members and 100 students, JGLS has travelled a long and distinguished journey having over 330 full-time faculty members and 3100 law students in 2020. It arguably has become one of the largest and most premiere law schools in India and Asia. Recently QS World University Subject Rankings 2020 ranked JGLS as one of the top 150 law schools (Rank 101-150) in the World. It has been ranked Number 1 in India and South Asia, Rank 10 in BRICS region and Rank 20 in whole of Asia!
JGLS faculty members come from 20 different legal jurisdictions with distinguished academic, research and practice backgrounds. Please read about them on the faculty page. Our students are winning international moots and debates. They are getting published in India and internationally. They contribute to produce research at over 50 JGLS and JGU research centres and at the same time they are among the best sports contingents any law school could think of.
JGLS Alumni have joined each of India’s top law firms in good numbers. They have joined international law firms as well and won scholarships to study at world’s leading universities and law schools. They have qualified the Bar exams of New York, California, Australia, UK etc. and became global lawyers in their own way. Please visit the OCS (Office of Career Services) page for more info.
JGLS is indeed the law school where any committed law aspirant will aspire to spend 3/5 years of her life and time and graduate as a lawyer with enough international exposure and global aspiration.
Admission to JGLS is done on the basis of LSAT—India Exam. Merit in the entrance test is the sole criterion for admission. You must prepare well and give your best for the entrance exam if keen to study here. The University has also instituted a good number of generous scholarships to support those meritorious aspirants who otherwise may not be able to afford studying at JGLS. Do submit the JGLS Online Scholarship Application to explore scholarship opportunities.
Lastly, I would like to invite you and your family to visit the Law School. In my view, visiting the campus and interacting with its students and faculty members is the best way to know an institution. Please do let me and my colleagues know if you need any assistance in this regard.
Best wishes and thanks for choosing JGLS!
