3 former VCs to teach law at O.P. Jindal Global University
NEW DELHI, SEPTEMBER 16: Four legendary law professors of India have been appointed as faculty members of Jindal Global Law School, O.P. Jindal Global University. The four doyens of Indian legal education who will be joining Jindal Global Law School as faculty members are: Professor (Dr.) Upendra Baxi, Professor (Dr.) Mahendra Pal Singh, Professor (Dr.) B.S. Chimni and Professor B.B. Pande. They would be joining JGU from the spring semester, 2020 and will be teaching courses starting February 2020.
Professor (Dr.) C. Raj Kumar, Founding Vice Chancellor of O.P. Jindal Global University and Dean of Jindal Global Law School observed, “It is a great honor for JGU and JGLS that on the 10th anniversary of our founding, these four inspiring teachers and prolific researchers who represent the best of Indian legal education have accepted to be faculty members at Jindal. They are outstanding professors of law and have mentored generations of lawyers, law professors, judges and many other individuals who have shaped the law and justice systems in India and around the world for nearly half a century. It is a proud moment for JGU that they have decided to spend the important years of their life and their future dedicating to the cause of higher education and legal education mentoring the students and faculty of JGU.”
Professor Upendra Baxi, former Vice Chancellor, University of Delhi & Professor Emeritus, University of Warwick observed, “For the rapid expansion to a full-blooded university, its incredible faculty and students, its Indian and overseas placements, and global ranking, the one person primarily responsible is Professor C. Raj Kumar. Far from just being an island of excellence, he has given a new meaning, in such a short time, to educational process and change in India. It is difficult to believe that such a miracle has happened, but it has.”
Professor M.P. Singh, former Vice Chancellor, National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata & former Dean, Faculty of Law, University of Delhi at his decision to join JGU as a full time faculty member said, “The essence and processes of law and legal systems around the globe are immensely interesting and challenging requiring lifetime commitment even to grasp a tiny element of it. Having engaged in this exercise in different institutions in the East and the West let it have its final destination at O.P. Jindal Global University and Jindal Global Law School, founded and led by one of our most illustrious former student Professor Dr. Raj Kumar. I am indeed looking forward to working with many outstanding faculty members from India and around the world who have made Jindal their home. I am looking forward to be part of JGU in the next few months. Hope it will be my final and best destination in my long journey in academics.”
