To facilitate national and international internships and placements, JGLS has established the Office of Career Services (OCS). Students interested in internships and placements are encouraged to contact the Assistant Dean of Student Initiatives, subject to the prior approval of the Director of Post Graduate Legal Studies. Students must be in good academic standing to be eligible for internships with firms and organizations that have entered into an agreement with JGLS. All applications will be assessed by a committee of faculty members nominated by the Vice Chancellor. However, the final decision to select students for internships and placements remains with the organizations themselves.

To promote the research work of students, the Law School conducts a student colloquium after the internship, where students have the opportunity to present their research work to faculty members and fellow students. Selected students for internships will have to sign a letter of undertaking to ensure that they maintain proper discipline, good behavior and accountability during their internship.

The Student Exchange Programme at Jindal Global Law School provides an excellent opportunity for students enrolled in the LL.M. Programme to pursue their second semester at one of JGLS’s partner universities. This programme has been very popular among students, as it allows them to not only enrich their academic and professional lives but also gain a broader perspective by studying at our partner institutions.

The Student Exchange Programme is designed to be revenue-neutral regarding tuition fees, meaning that students will continue to pay their tuition fees at their home institution and will be responsible for their travel, living, and other ancillary expenses during the exchange programme.

Upon successful completion of the programme, students will be awarded a dual LL.M. degree, one from JGU and the other from the partner university, allowing them to complete two LL.M. degrees in one year.

JGLS also offers the JGLS-Brunel Dual LL.M. Programme, which provides a unique opportunity for JGLS students to secure two LL.M. degrees. The selected students spend one year at JGLS and another year of study at Brunel Law School to pursue the Masters of Law (LL.M.) programme.
