Pace University’s Elisabeth Haub School of Law and India’s Jindal Global Law School to cooperate on research and teaching in environmental and energy law

September 14, 2020

Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University and Jindal Global Law School at O.P. Jindal Global University in Delhi, India, have reached an agreement to collaborate through academic and personal exchanges in areas of law including environmental law and energy law.

The agreement will enable both schools to teach courses for U.S. and Indian students, conduct training seminars, and participate in conferences and symposia organized between the schools in various fields of law.

It will also enhance joint research projects focused on the comparative study of law, and promote interaction between the Haub Law students and Jindal Law students.

“This agreement will allow us to expand the vision and reach of our research globally, and allow our schools to exchange students seeking broader international perspectives on legal studies, especially in the area of environmental law,” said Haub Law Dean Horace Anderson.

The five-year, renewable agreement, signed last month, is already paying off in terms of joint research. Haub Law and Jindal Law faculty are working on a book on the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The book, which is expected to be published in early 2021, is being prepared under the auspices of the Haub Law Global Center for Environmental Legal Studies with the help of a team of recent graduates and students from Haub Law and Jindal Law.

Academic cooperation for joint research also is anticipated among Jindal’s Center for the Study of the United Nations, Haub Law’s UN Environmental Diplomacy program, and Haub Law’s collaborative program with the University for Peace, an institution of higher education established by the UN General Assembly and dedicated to the study of peace.
