About JGLS

The vision in establishing JGU and JGLS is to impart globalised education with a view to producing world-class professionals, scholars, and academics in law and other disciplines. Globalization has opened various opportunities and challenges which have created the need for competent academics, scholars and professionals. The vision of JGU and JGLS is to fulfil this need by equipping their students and faculty with the knowledge, skills, scholarship and vision to meet these challenges and demands of globalization.

About the Opportunity

In this conference series, participants are invited to explore the divergence of law between common law countries through a comparative lens. Papers must significantly engage with two or three common law jurisdictions, one of which must be England, on the topic of choice. Through this exercise, the conference series hopes to identify the diversity and ingenuity in domestic systems as they grapple with modern problems, as well as the friction and internal tension created occasionally as courts attempt to navigate a departure from a known tradition.
