Further, JGLS students have also been offered international internship opportunities at White & Case (the UK & Abu Dhabi offices), Corrs (Australia), Attorney General’s Department (Australia), Zhicheng Public Interest Lawyers (China) and the Hawaii State Supreme Court (US), among several others.

Commenting on the success of the 2019 graduating class, Prof C Raj Kumar, Founding Vice Chancellor and Dean of  JGLS said,

A myopic approach to careers focussing solely on job placements of its graduates tends to ignore the value of holistic professional growth of the students along with providing the broadest possible horizon of professional opportunities to its students. Legal education at JGLS enables its graduates to setup their own practice of law, or join a senior and start practicing in the courts and does not necessarily need to look for a job.”
