Students joining LLM programme may have different career objectives prior to joining this course. In most cases, students want to become subject experts so as to increase their marketability subsequent to the completion of the programme. On the other hand, there are students who want to pursue PhD at a later stage and for them LLM is a prerogative besides providing a good platform to acquire research skills. At the JGLS, LLM students get the best guidance on their chosen career path. Students also get ample opportunity to hone their analytical mind through research under the able guidance of supervisors.
JGLS established a Office of Career Services (OCS). The aim of the OCS is to facilitate rewarding national and international internships and placements. A student colloquium will be organized by the Law School as a follow up to the internship where students participate and present their research work with fellow students and faculty.
Students interested in internships and placements are requested to contact the Assistant Dean of Student Initiatives, with an expression of interest not longer than one page and with the prior approval of the Director of Post Graduate Legal Studies. Students must be in good academic standing and merit to be eligible to apply to for internships with firms and organizations with which JGLS has entered into an agreement. Applications will be assessed by a committee of faculty members nominated by the Vice Chancellor. For all internships and placements, in keeping with the requirements and conditions of the firms and organizations, final decision to select students remains with those organizations. Selected students for internship will have to sign a letter of undertaking to ensure proper discipline, good behavior and accountability during the period of internship.
