A. Mr. Khagesh Gautam, Associate Professor of Law and Assistant Dean (Research and Publications) Jindal Global Law School taught at William S. Richardson School of Law (WSR) at University of Hawaii.“ I taught a course on comparative constitutional law at the William S. Richardson School of Law (WSR) at U. of Hawaii. The focus of the course was specifically on US and Indian constitutions. Teaching in WSR was a great experience.

I had a good class that comprised of very diligent students who were eager to learn more about the Indian Constitutions. The papers that my students wrote were very impressive. Discussions in class were full of energy and enthusiasm. Apart from that, it is a beautiful campus and the weather in January was great. I met several other faculty members there and all of them were very welcoming. All in all, it was avery pleasant experience.”

Exchange Student – Ms.  Christina  Lizzi,  J.D.  Candidate,  December  2017 William S. Richardson School of Law, University of Hawai’i at Mānoa “I attended O.P. Jindal Global Law School as an international exchange student in the Spring of 2017. I highly encourage any student to spend a semester at JGU. The modern campus is set outside the busy city-limits of Delhi, but close enough to have a rich array of experiences both on and off- campus. On campus, I took classes from acclaimed faculty in line with my current focus on environmental law at my home institution. Other faculty and staff were also ready mentors, regardless of whether I was enrolled in their class or not. I was impressed by the diversity of the faculty and the wide-ranging areas of expertise that they represented. I enjoyed being part of a community of international students and the larger body of student at the JGU. Not only did I learn about India through the Indian students who welcomed me with such kindness, but I learned about the world through new friendships with students from Germany, Tibet, Mozambique, China, Kenya, and other countries. I also saw the power of bringing students from such diverse countries together at one institution. I witnessed relationships between Tibetan and Chinese students being forged and as an United States citizen, made my first friends from Afghanistan and came to better understand the relationship of our countries. I also enjoyed the multiple cultural festivals organized at JGU. With support of JGU’s staff, I was also able to arrange a class schedule enabling me to complete an internship at the Principal Bench of the National Green Tribunal in addition to my coursework. My internship continued into the summer after classes ended and provided an opportunity to apply the knowledge I learned in the classroominareal-world setting. In my free time, I also traveled throughout Northern India, deepening my understanding of Indian culture. I saw the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, learned from gurus in the birthplace of yoga – Rishikesh, and saw where Saint Mother Theresa did her life’s work in Calcutta. I also visited the iconic Taj Mahal andsites throughout Delhi. I hope that your time at JGU will be as fulfilling as mine and open your eyes to a new way of understanding, ultimately enriching you academically, personally, andprofessionally. Namaste.”
