Exclusive: Jindal Global Law School (JGLS) has agreed with Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario to send one student per year for a semester to the Canadian University and up to six students to the college’s UK-based summer school, as well as entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Toronto’s Osgoode Law School of York University.

The Haryana-based law school will send one student in January 2011 to Ontario, which has been funded by independent donor Andrew Best. In summer 2011 the two colleges have also planned for four to six JGLS students to attend the UK-based Bader International Study Center summer study program run by Queen’s University.

Queen’s vice chancellor Dr Daniel Woolf said: “Jindal is a very new university and Queen's a much older one but the two institutions share the same aspirations with respect to global education. We welcome this latest step in Queen's engagement with India.”

On 25 October JGLS also entered into an MOU with Osgoode Hall Law School of York University with a a view to “continued research and conference collaboration, student and faculty exchanges, as well as executive education opportunities”, said JGLS in a statement.

The two colleges had held a joint conference in late October in Toronto, which was funded by the Canadian Government, with a second conference with JGLS and York University now having been scheduled for March 2011 in New Delhi.

JGLS dean and Jindal Global University vice chancellor Prof Raj Kumar said that this would enhance Indo-Canadian research dialogue and inter-jurisdictional
educational opportunities, with both countries having to act as bridge builders.

“This is real stuff [and] substantive relationships are being offered. I am really excited about it,” he said, adding that other law colleges in India too should look into collaborating more deeply with foreign universities: “Anybody can do it.”

JGLS had forged ties with three US law schools over the past months.
