Texas A&M School of Law launches the Global Immersion Fellowship for Talent & Educational Development (GIFTED) Program with O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU), India’s top-ranked private law school.
For the first time in India, students have the opportunity to spend just one semester in the United States and earn a U.S. law school LL.M degree.
Under the GIFTED Program, students will spend the coming fall semester studying at JGU – the credits from which will in part (up to 12 credits) be eligible for transfer to Texas A&M Law.
The spring semester will then be spent in residence at Texas A&M Law, after which students will (subject to their successful completion of their courses) earn their LL.M degree from Texas A&M Law. Additionally, however, by combining the non-transferred credits from the fall and JGU credit for the student’s spring coursework (adding up to a minimum of 16 credits at JGU), students will be eligible to earn an LL.M from JGU as well.
For the 2020-21 academic year, tuition and academic fees for the program are expected to be approximately $24,000.
