The School of Law at BML Munjal University has entered into a number of relationships with leading global universities to provide our students with substantive and cost-effective international learning opportunities, both during and after their studies at BMU. We have a team that is dedicated to assisting our students in achieving their international learning and career objectives.
BMU’s primary institutional relationships are below and provide students deeper and more substantive international opportunities than they are likely to get at any other Indian university.
BMU School of Law is collaborating with Duke University’s School of Law. Duke has one of the very best law schools in the United States (it was most recently ranked 11 in the US) and prides itself on providing leadership at the national and international levels in efforts to improve the law and legal institutions through teaching, research, and other forms of public service. Under this collaboration, BMU students will be nominated to Duke’s innovative summer academies in the United States and the Netherlands and will be able to attend those programs at a significant discount. Duke and BMU have also agreed on a research exchange program where faculty may visit the other institution. BMU will submit recommendations for their best and most compatible students for Duke’s LLM program, which prepares students for legal practice in the US. Unlike most LLM programs, students admitted to Duke’s top-ranked program are eligible for financial aid as determined by Duke.
BMU School of Law is collaborating with Syracuse University and its College of Law, where US President Joe Biden received his law degree, to bring hands-on US-based legal education to our students. Under this agreement—the first of its kind between Syracuse and an Indian law school—selected students from BMU will be able to study for a semester in Syracuse without having to pay additional tuition, a saving of over Rs. 20 lakhs for BMU students. BMU students will also be able to save similar sums on Syracuse’s LL.M. program and will even be eligible to receive a US LL.M. in only one semester after completing their Indian degrees. Syracuse offers BMU students substantially discounted tuition to their unique two-year Juris Doctor program, which puts foreign students on par with US students for legal practice in the US, as well as summer programs that build students’ English language lawyering skills.
BMU School of Law is collaborating with the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, a more than 120-year-old legal institution that provides some of the best legal education in the world in the fields of health law, international commercial law, intellectual property, and innovation law. BMU law students have priority access to this top-ranked US law program at a significant discount, allowing them to complete their degrees for a small fraction of what students at other Indian law schools are able to offer for their students studying abroad. BMU law is Pittsburgh School of Law’s only Indian partnership.
BMU School of Law also has agreements for priority admission and discounted tuition for BMU students in international summer immersion programs. BMU Law Students are eligible for 10% discounts on tuition for courses in the London School of Economics’s summer program (covering issues of UK, European, and international law), 20% discounts on tuition at Fordham University’s three-week Summer Institute (covering issues on US law and legal skill building), up to 50% discounts on tuition for Syracuse University’s six-week English and lawyering skills program, created to train students in international legal practice, and 50% discounts at Duke Law School’s summer programs in the United States and the Netherlands.
