JGU launches international work experience prog for students

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

In a bid to provide international work experience to its law students, the O P Jindal Global University has launched an initiative which will open several internship opportunities to Indian students in Australia.

The Jindal Global Law School's (JGLS) initiative 'Young Leaders Externship Advancement Programme' (YLEAP) in Australia was launched by the university's Centre for India Australia Studies (CIAS), a press release issued by the university said.

It said the YLEAP allows students to gain valuable international work experience in law firms and government organisations and provides a unique stepping stone for Indian students who are considering a potential career in Australia.

Commenting on the development, JGU Vice Chancellor, C Raj Kumar, said, "As a global university, JGU always strives to provide unique global opportunities to our students. The Australian education system is truly world class and we have close ties with some of the leading global universities based in Australia."

The Law Council of Australia recently recognised the JGLS degree, making it much simpler for its graduate students to become qualified to practice law in Australia, the press note said.
