Jindal Global Law School (JGLS) has arranged a reciprocal student exchange programme with New York's Cornell Law School starting in 2012, also agreeing on other joint initiatives.

JGLS dean Prof Raj Kumar told Legally India that student exchange programmes would start from January 2012, in which two to three students from Sonipat would study at Cornell for one term and New York students too would come to India.

A host of joint initiatives would be undertaken by both universities, added a JGLS press release, including organising a conference on gender based violence and justice in South Asia, to be held in October 2011.

Dean and professor of law at the US law school, Allan R. Tessler Stewart J. Schwab, said in a statement that he looked forward to creating a long-standing relationship with JGLS: “We believe that this alliance will greatly benefit faculty and students from both schools and further enhance Cornell’s international programs.”

Cornell is the 13th university that JGLS has collaborated with according to its website, having also signed memoranda of understanding (MoU) with Yale in November 2010 and Canadian Queen’s University in Ontario.
