Prof (Dr) C. Raj Kumar, the Founding Vice Chancellor of O.P. Jindal University highlighted that JGLS is the only law school in India to be featured among the TOP-100 in the world.

“JGLS has only been established 15 years ago with 10 faculty members and 100 students in 2009, Today, it has over 5,500 students and over 550 full-time faculty members. It has achieved such distinction in a remarkably short time due to its pedagogy, teaching standards, research outcomes, and international partnerships which has made it the premier law school in the country today,” said Dr Kumar.

Meanwhile, apart from JGLS, two other Law Schools from India made it to the list this year. These include the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bengaluru which has been ranked 151-200, and the Faculty of Law, University of Delhi, ranked 201-250.
