Indiana and India may look similar in print, but of course they’re half a world apart. A new initiative between Indiana University and O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) in Haryana, India, may bridge that gap through a series of collaborations and student exchanges across a number of academic departments, including Indiana University Maurer School of Law-Bloomington and the Jindal Global Law School. “It will create knowledge and develop the professional skills of our students by introducing them to a wide variety of graduate-level experiences within the U.S. educational system, while giving American students first-hand interaction with the rapidly growing Indian economy,” said JGU Vice Chancellor Raj Kumar. Indiana University officials noted that the extent of the new initiative is unusual in higher education. “To my knowledge, this is the first time that an Indian and U.S. university have entered into such a wide-ranging collaboration across several professional disciplines,” said Indiana law professor Jayanth Krishnan. “The partnership is especially timely given the Indian government’s current attention to educational collaboration with U.S. institutions and President Obama’s visit to New Delhi in early November.” Krishnan is the head of the India Initiative at the law school’s Center on the Global Legal profession, which was launched in the summer of 2009 to examine legal systems and the practice of law worldwide. As part of the initiative, law students from both universities will have the opportunity to complete exchanges — Indiana law students may complete internships in India, while JGU students may compete internships in the United States. The two schools will also collaborate on research and conferences. Indiana will recruit at JGU for its international LL.M program, said dean Lauren Robel.
