The College of Law, Syracuse University will allow selected students from BMU to study for a semester at one of the USA’s premier law schools, immersing themselves in a multicultural academic environment. The partnership with School of Law, University of Augsburg will open the door for BMU students to participate in prestigious summer programmes in European and International Economic Law and their esteemed LLM programme, enriching their understanding of international legal affairs. The partnership with Duke University School of Law will introduce innovative summer academies in the US and the Netherlands, enabling students to gain cutting-edge legal knowledge while experiencing diverse legal cultures. The research exchange program will further foster collaboration between faculties, paving the way for groundbreaking research initiatives. BMUs collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh School of Law will set a precedent for Indian law schools, offering BMU students priority access to the distinguished US law programme at a substantial discount. This pioneering initiative has been designed to empower BMU students to complete their degrees abroad, providing them with unparalleled value and a truly international experience.
Speaking on the collaborations, Dr. Pritam Baruah, Dean, School of Law, BMU, stated, “We are delighted to partner with prestigious international universities in areas of student experiences, teaching, and research. We want our students to get an immersive international experience as a part of their legal education. We also want international students and academics to engage with legal issues of the “global south” as well as the twin issues of fast disappearing borders on some fronts, and increasingly deepening ones on the other.”
He further added, “Through our collaborations, BMUs SoL nurtures graduates who are equipped to lead with an international mindset based on a sound understanding of diverse legal systems, and anchored in a commitment to justice, equality, liberty and fraternity.”
In partnerships like Syracuse University, the university thoughtfully eliminates additional charges beyond tuition fees, ensuring that students can pursue the programme without unnecessary financial burdens, leading to a saving of around INR 20 lakhs. Additionally, financial aid opportunities are available for students admitted to Dukes top-ranked programme, which will be determined by Duke.
BMUs commitment to international exposure does not end with these partnerships. The university is in advanced discussions with prestigious institutions like Durham University Law School, the University of Florence, and the University of Coventry for future student and faculty exchange programmes. The forthcoming partnership with Coventry Universitys Law School is set to create more opportunities for academic and cultural exchange.
Moreover, BMU’s SoL has agreements for priority admission and discounted tuition for BMU’s students in international summer immersion programmes for courses in universities such as London School of Economics, Fordham University, Syracuse University and Duke University.
