Rigorous Academic Curriculum

As the most advanced degrees offered at JGLS, the LLM and the PhD programmes are designed to represent outstanding academic achievement. The intensive curriculum provides a number of electives on contemporary topics in our international and business oriented streams. The courses and curriculum reflect the contemporary needs of a rapidly changing global legal profession. While the fulfillment of academic credits is the basis for the completion of the programme, there is also a mandatory research component which gives students an opportunity to write on topics of contemporary legal significance. To meet the requirements of our programme, the independent research paper must be of publishable quality. Students will be supervised by a faculty member and provided with the necessary help to publish his/her independent research.

Our teaching pedagogy is based on the assumption that students pursuing an LLM degree have a strong academic background and basic understanding of their speciality area. Many of our courses are taught by both leading scholars and periodically by accomplished international and domestic practitioners. We have high faculty-student ratio of 1:3 and better interactive learning atmosphere.
