  • Students May Take LSAT Early & Secure Admission To Law School Before Writing Board Exams: Jindal Global Law School Begins Admissions For Year 2021-22

    The Admission process to all the academic programmes offered at Jindal Global Law School (JGLS) has started from February 1, 2020.

    In a press note issued to this effect, Professor (Dr) C. Raj Kumar, Founding VC of OP Jindal Global University and Dean, JGLS said,

    "This is an Early Admission Process. Students writing 12th standard board examinations and also preparing for entrance exams always have a tough time every year balancing both these competing aspirations. This year students can take the LSAT-India 2021 early and can secure their admission to the law school and write their board exams in an absolute peaceful state of mind."

    Admissions to JGLS are made through LSAT-India entrance exam, which will be for administration on 25 March 2021. [Registration for this session will open Wednesday, 3 February and close on 14 March 2021]

    Significantly, a re-test for LSAT- India will also be held in the week starting 14 June 2021. Referring to this, Prof. Kumar said,

    "There was no opportunity in the past to law aspirants to improve their score. Law entrance exams were always a one-time opportunity. If it was a bad day for any student, you lose your chance for the year. Now, the students get a second chance in June 2021 to better their score and seek admission in case, they don't do well in the March exam. Students had no option but to wait for the next year if they didn't qualify LSAT--India cutoff earlier."

    He added,

    "The conflict of entrance test with various class XII board exams has been completely avoided by double administration of LSAT--India Test. In the past year, the students of IB and Cambridge boards were adversely affected when exams happened only once in the month of May."
