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 upcoming fall semester studying at JGU – the credits from which will in part be eligible for transfer to Texas A&M School of Law (up to 12 credits total).

The spring semester (second semester in the program) will then be spent in residence at Texas A&M School of Law in Fort Worth, Texas, after which students will earn their LL.M. degree from Texas A&M School of Law (subject to successful completion of their courses). Additionally, by combining the non-transferred credits from the fall semester and JGU credit for the spring coursework at Texas A&M School of Law (adding up to a minimum of 16 credit hours 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.
