The National Law School of India University, Bangalore is pleased to announce a collaboration with the JSW Law School of Bhutan to launch their inaugural summer school program in June this year. This program is being launched in partnership with the Faculty of Law at the National University of Singapore.

The JSW School of Law is now inviting applications for the Summer Law School at its new green campus just outside of Paro, Bhutan. Courses will be taught intensively over a two-week period from June 26 – July 10, 2023. Students will have a choice of three courses taught by highly respected legal academics from leading law schools in Asia:

  • Comparative Criminal Law by Professor Stanley Yeo, Centre for Asian Legal Studies, National University of Singapore
  • Comparative Constitutionalism in Asia by Professor Arun Thiruvengadam, National Law School of India University, India
  • Legal Argument and Narrative by Associate Professor Helena Whalen-Bridge, National University of Singapore

The program will admit a maximum of 25 students. Students must enrol in two of the three courses offered. The timetable is designed so that students enrolling in two courses will spend around 5 hours in class per teaching day with ample breaks in between. Students have a field trip on Fridays and a free day on Saturday. Each course is taught using the seminar method, in classes of 2 to 3 hours’ duration and totaling 23 class contact hours. They are assessed by continuous modes such as reading reflection papers, student presentations of readings, class participation, and a final take-home exam to be completed a few weeks after the summer school has ended.

Upon satisfactory completion, students will be awarded a certificate detailing the courses they have taken and the grades received. The certificate will be signed by representatives of the JSW School of Law, the National Law School of India and the National University of Singapore.
