In an innovative step towards development of regional arrangement at an academic and research platform, and also with the aim of fortifying our relationships with legal education institutions elsewhere on the globe, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed in the winter of 2015 to establish the ‘BRICS Law Institute Project’. The participants in this MoU are:
Pontifical Catholic University of Sao Paulo (Sao Paulo, Brazil)
University of Sao Paulo (Sao Paulo, Brazil)
Ural State Law University (Yekaterinburg, Russia)
National Law University (Jodhpur, India)
Beijing Union University (Beijing, China)
University of Pretoria (Pretoria, Republic of South Africa)
Thus, as amongst six universities, ‘National Law University Jodhpur’ is the only Indian university. The NLU Jodhpur BRICS Law Institute is thereby, the outcome of an alliance committed to facilitating, fostering, and promoting interdisciplinary, intercultural, and inter-stakeholder collaborative research initiatives. With the aid of international conferences, moot court competitions, pioneering an academic journal, along with an initiative to establish a certificate course on BRICS Law, we seek to follow up on the endeavor.
