“The new programme will fulfil the much-needed gap in Indian Higher education and it builds on the efforts of the Indian high school education system, which has introduced “Legal studies” in recent years” said C. Raj Kumar, Founding Vice-Chancellor, JGU and Dean, Jindal Global Law School while launching the BA legal studies programme.

The press release of JGU has mentioned five objectives of the new UG programme. It says, the introduction of 3-year BA(Hons.) has democratised the study of law and made it accessible to all students.

The undergraduate degree in legal studies will help the students in making an informed choice as to whether they want to pursue law as a career. After completing an undergraduate degree in legal studies, the students will have the option to pursue the 3-year LLB programme.

The newly introduced programme intends to introduce legal studies within the context of humanities and social science. The programme will enable the students to understand the nuanced dimensions of building a society based on the rule of law and to promote access to justice.

Moreover, the University will also conduct student exchange programmes for the students of BA Legal studies, along with short term study abroad programmes in law.

Earlier, the 3-year BA (Hons.) programme was inaugurated by Stephen P. Marks, a professor at Harvard University. While delivering a lecture on ‘Changing the World Through Law’, Marks stressed on the importance of law and its relations with justice and power relations. The Harvard professor further advocated that the study of law can prepare one to be a problem solver and an agent of positive change against emerging challenges such as climate change.

Which one is good?Jindal global law school or Symbiosis law school?

Yashu Shrivastava 31st Dec, 2019


Talking about Symbiosis Law School,Pune and Jindal Global Law School,Sonipat.Both colleges are considered as the best private colleges for LAW in INDIA.But if we look towards the fees of these 2 colleges,Jindal Global Law School is much expensive than Symbiosis Law School,which is drawback for those who want colleges at affordable price.Now if we talk about the placements,Jindal Global Law School placement is better than Symbiosis Law School,but it does not cover the ROI.So,both the colleges are in TOP 3,but its your choice that whether you want college at affordable fees or college with high fees and good placement.

Hope It Helps

It is a highly reputable university accepting students from the 80+ percentile range. However, cutoffs vary each year, so you can keep a lookout. 


I scored 99.14 percentile in my LSAT exam this year. Can I get a scholarship in JGLS Sonepat.?

Drut 26th Dec, 2019

Hello Maxim

As far as I know, you should not face any problem while getting scholarship at such a great percentile. But There are different terms and conditions for providing scholarships so you would have to read those of JGLS in order to know if they would provide you the scholarship.
