Cornell Law School can send up to three students to the Jindal Global Law School (JGLS) each academic year, for one semester.  Placements may be made in either the fall or spring semesters. However, spring placements are available for 2Ls only. The JGSL is a new law school in India, admitting its first class in 2009.  It was created to be a very different sort of institution that had existed there previously: The vision in establishing JGU and JGLS is to impart globalized education with aview to producing world-class professionals, scholars, and academics in law and other disciplines. Globalization has opened various opportunities and challenges which have created the need for competent academics, scholars and professionals. The vision of JGU and JGLS is to fulfill this need by equipping their students and faculty with the knowledge, skills, scholarship and vision to meet these challenges and demands of globalization. India, which is on the verge of becoming an economic superpower must produce world-class professionals, scholars, and academics to compete globally. History indicates that excellence in education leads to economic growth and development. The Founders of JGU and JGLS, having realized this, have come up with the mission to establish this global institution in India, which will be comparable to the best in the world.
