The sole reason I came to the Centre for Post Graduate Legal Studies, Jindal Global Law School was to enhance my marketability and eventually it got fructified. From my thought process to my personality, the gamut of experiences changed it all. Under the able supervision and guidance of the best faculty members, having both academic and industry experiences across the world, I carved a niche for myself. I am most profoundly grateful to Prof. Dabiru Sridhar Patnaik, Director, Centre for Post Graduate Legal Studies for providing capacious opportunities to students who come from different colleges having different patterns of learning. I am blessed to have been a part of JGU as it is a revolution in academia. I would also like to mention the ardent efforts of the Career Development and Placement Division in helping each student getting placed with the best organizations, firms and litigators in the country as someone has rightly said that there is no better satisfaction than a job satisfaction. The key highlights of this institution are its competent and abreast faculty and its comprehensive curriculum. Apart from the core and foundational subjects one gets to choose electives from possibly the widest range of subjects. Those super interactive lectures, guest lectures (by the biggest names in the legal and academic fraternity) and National and International Seminars, adorns a student to go out and implement all the learning and experiences assimilated. I pursued LLM in IPR and with the best of guidance and versatile pedagogy from Prof. Arpan Banerjee, Prof. Indranath Gupta and Prof. Vishwas Devaiah, I find myself well apprised of the IP laws. My journey at JGLS was extraordinary. From making some real good friends to performing at Bollywood nights, I miss it all. I’ve had a life changing experience at this university. I never thought that my CV would be shortlisted by JSPL, Microsoft, and other top notch IP boutique law firms. I came to this institution with some ecstasy and a lot of tremulousness but this institution has instilled in me that much needed confidence. I hope I am able to put into action all the teachings imbibed and do the institution and my teachers even more proud through my future endeavours. It has been the best decision of my life to pursue LLM from the CPGLS, JGLS. I’ll always be indebted to this institution. Hands down it is the best law school in India!!!

Doing my Masters of Law at the O.P. Jindal Global University has been one of the best phase of life. I was awarded Savitri Jindal and Means based Scholarship to pursue LLM at the Centre for Post Graduate Legal Studies, JGLS. This one year has taught me so much, it has been such amazing experience, that, if given a chance I would have taken up my five-year law here as well. I would like to thank the faculty for being so patient and encouraging in dealing with our never ending doubts and questions, to help us understand the subject rather than mere learning it. We were provided with such wonderful opportunities to learn and connect with remarkable scholars and professionals leading in their respective fields. I have made few amazing friends in my colleagues and discovered wonderful mentors in my faculty here and I will always cherish the time spent here and the things I learned. And at the end, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for being given the opportunity to work at the University itself and will always love to be associated to the institution in one way or another. I am happy to share that I am also selected as Research Associate/Assistant at Jindal Institute for Research on IP and Competition (JIRICO), O.P. Jindal Global University.

Coming to Jindal was a life changing decision I made, in terms of my higher education. I have gained many things from my duration at the O.P. Jindal Global University. The courses offered at the Centre for Post Graduate Legal Studies, Jindal Global Law School provide a platform to improve practical skills in addition to the theoretical knowledge gained. The professors are well-versed in the subjects and are very approachable. They encourage students to participate actively in class and provide clarifications of doubts at any given time. The choice of electives provided by various professors are vast and students are given the option to pursue courses of interest to them and sharpen my skills in my field of choice. The Centre for Postgraduate Legal Studies, under the leadership of its Director Prof. Sridhar Patnaik Dabiru and Assistant Director Prof. Indranath Gupta provide all the encouragement and guidance one could hope for. They have been exemplary mentors and provided the necessary guidance to steer in the right direction and grow in character. Ms. Anitha Shibu, who is also a part of the CPGLS family, has provided us with immense support at any point of the day and we have always been able to go to her with any problem we had – from calling her after work hours to going to her office and badgering her for every small thing. The friends you make at Jindal act as a family at this home away from home. Everyone is friendly and it is quite easy to find your clique – to find people who get along with and who will help you through whatever problems you face.

The LLM Program offered by Centre for Post Graduate Legal Studies (CPGLS) at the OP Jindal Global University, in my opinion is definitely unparalleled in India. Looking back at my one year here gives me a lot of good memories. The college has world class infrastructure to supplement a really brilliant group of faculty members. It was the willingness of our Professors to constantly interact with us, both formally and informally, that taught me of new manner of thought processes, which made my experience here exceptionally enlightening. I came here as a neophyte, with aspirations of learning more in the field of corporate financial law, but by my own introspection, my perceptions were limited to only what was stated in the books. However, after just one year here, my perceptions about the interplay between corporate laws with the different fields of law has broadened the scope of my research. Moreover, the learning from classrooms was supplanted by monthly guest lectures and seminars, where I had an opportunity to interact with countless legal luminaries, and partners from big four law firms. Sincerely, the CPGLS program is the best thing ever to happen to my life so far, and I would like to thank Director Professor Dabiru Sridhar Patnaik and Professor Indranath Gupta, for being the beacons of the legal education. Now I plan to do a second LLM.
