In a first, four students of Jindal Global Law School have been selected for a Summer Clerkship at the Supreme Court of Hawaii.

The students have been selected for a six week clerkship. Three of them – Aparajita Sheel, Ishnoor Saini, and Swarnim Swasti are fourth year students – while Avni Choudhary is a third-year student.

Professor C. Raj Kumar, Dean of Jindal Global Law School said in a press release,

“The Summer Clerkship Programme at the Supreme Court of Hawaii is a wonderful opportunity for the students of Jindal Global Law School for gaining a strong grounding in the US law including substantive and procedural law. This programme aims to promote global legal education. It also gives our students training and perspectives in the working of the US court system…”

According to the release, the programme came into being during the visit of Justice Michael Wilson, Judge of the Supreme Court of Hawaii to the Jindal Global Law School in March 2015. Justice Wilson observed:

“This is a landmark initiative in which we are able to host the outstanding students of Jindal Global Law School at the Supreme Court of Hawaii. This will pave way for dialogue and interaction among the law students in the USA and India. The Chief Justice and the judges of our court are delighted to have this opportunity.”

The Clerkship will allow the students to observe court proceedings and assist the judges of the court in their research.
