The law school has recorded a 70% increase in Student Enrolment this year and it has also recruited over 90 new full time faculty members, which will take the total strength of full-time faculty members at JGLS to over 400.
It took a historic decision early this year and LSAT-India 2020 was made a fully online test in an artificial intelligence-enabled and remote-proctored format.
It has also introduced a new JSAT-Law Exam conducted by Pearson VUE for its 3-year LLB, LLM and BA (Hons.) Legal Studies programmes. It is conducted on a rolling basis in the AI-Enabled and Remote-Proctored mode and will continue till the end of September.
JGLS is the first leading law school to begin classes for this academic session with over 1,500 new students (from 25 different States and Union Territories of India and International students) who have joined six different academic degree programmes at both UG and PG level in the law school. This is when most of the law entrance exams are yet to be conducted in the country and admissions process in law schools are showing no sign of starting.
The Founding Vice Chancellor of O.P. Jindal Global University and the Founding Dean of Jindal Global Law School, Professor (Dr.) C Raj Kumar observed:
“The astounding success of the 2020 JGLS Admissions process could be attributed to the fact that JGLS has acquired a national and international reputation that provides world class legal education. The outstanding faculty, innovative and interdisciplinary teaching pedagogy, multidisciplinary research ecosystem, wide-ranging international collaborations, active research centres, dynamic mooting and advocacy opportunities, effective clinical legal education and experiential learning, and the impressive physical infrastructure and vibrant intellectual environment at JGLS is par excellence. As a testament to our institution building efforts, in March 2020, JGLS was ranked as India’s Number 1 Law School by the coveted QS World University Rankings 2020 By Subject and was also ranked among the top 101-150 law schools in the world. Notably, O.P. Jindal Global University in which JGLS is one of the nine schools was ranked as India’s First Ranked Private University by the QS WUR 2020. I am particularly delighted that JGLS has helped in an effort to transform the landscape of Indian legal education providing opportunities to our students to purse world class legal education in India.”
