International educational collaborations and partnerships are essential to promote the global nature of JGLS. The school has formed a number of partnerships and associations with universities across the globe
To foster a collaborative research culture, JGLS has witnessed growth of two jointly run research centres, that work on cutting edge issues on law and policy, that fall under their domain
These law schools from around the globe also send their students to study at JGLS for a semester as part of these student exchange arrangements. Study periods spent abroad not only enrich students’ lives in the academic and professional fields, but can also improve language learning, intercultural skills, self-reliance and self-awareness. This experience gives students a better sense of what it means to be a global citizen. In addition, many employers value such exposure, which increases the students employability and job prospects.
In some cases, credits earned during the exchange semester may count towards an LL.M. degree pursued after graduation at the same institution. The programme is highly subsidized from the perspective of an Indian student since students continue to pay for their tuition at home law school, and only bear costs of travel and living expenses abroad.
