Profs Aakanksha Kumar (l), Gowthaman Ranganathan join JGLS as assistant profs

JGLS Sonepat has announced the joining of another 64 faculty members to its law school in January 2021.

This is in addition to its previous round of 103 new law school hires in September 2020, and the 104 new teachers it had hired in February 2020.

In an internal announcement sent to students and faculty, founding JGU vice-chancellor (VC) Prof Raj Kumar announced the 64 hires in addition to 48 other faculty members hired for its non-law schools: “With the addition of new faculty members, JGU has 832 faculty members including 131 Academic Tutors and TRIP Fellows across ten schools.”

“It is also a fascinating achievement for JGU that 60% of our faculty members have international qualifications from the leading universities of the world,” he added. A total of 69% of all the new faculty members were women.

The latest January 2021 hires include a total of 112 new members across the entire Jindal Global University, of whom 65 are with the law school.

Out of those 65, two are assistant professors while the rest are lecturers (7), assistant lecturers (18) and more than half (37) are academic tutors and fellows under its Teaching & Research for Intellectual Pursuit (TIRP) programme, which it had launched out in July 2020 to provide academic career opportunities to graduates in the earlier days of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Two new assistant profs

The two assistant professors are Prof Aakanksha Kumar and Prof Gowthaman Ranganathan.

Kumar had most recently been an assistant professor at Nalsar Hyderabad. She is an 2012 HNLU Raipur LLB graduate with an LLM National University of Singapore, and has been a PhD candidate at NLU Jodhpur since 2016.

Ranganathan had been research assistant at the University of Texas immediately before joining JGLS and holds a 2010 LLB from NLSIU Bangalore and LLMs from Azim Premji University and The University of Texas at Austin, where he was a Fulbright-Nehru Scholar.

Even larger September 2020 recruitment

JGLS’ previous law school faculty recruitment of 103 from September 2020, which had been press released and widely covered at the time, also included two more senior hires: one full professor and dean of career services, Prof (Dr) Pankaj Gupta, and one associate professor Prof Courtenay Erin Morris.

The other September 2020 hires were spread across the assistant professor (11), lecturer (22), assistant lecturer (25) and academic tutor ranks (42.

See the full break-down of hires below for more details.

Across those two hiring intakes, 37 of the new faculty hires held LLB degrees from National Law Universities (NLUs) (which has always seemed a particularly interesting statistic to LI readers). Out of these 37, 10 were at lecturer seniority or above.

In addition to those numbers, 27 NLU graduates had been hired in February 2020.

By LLB college: 37 hires from NLUs, most from JGLS, Amity, CNLU

January 2021: 14 NLU LLBs, Amity on top

In the most recent January round of 64, the greatest number of recruits came from Amity University (a total of 9, or potentially up to 12 if including its parent, Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University Delhi).

Delhi University provided another six recruits, while JGLS itself was the undergraduate alma mater for four.

National Law Universities (NLUs) contributed 13 hires, of whom the most senior ranks included two assistant professors and two lecturers, led numerically by:

  • HNLU Raipur (total of 3: includes one assistant professor, Prof Aakanksha Kumar, and one lecturer),
  • NUSRL Ranchi (2) and RMLNLU Lucknow (2),
  • one each from DSNLU Visakhapatnam, NLIU Bhopal (lecturer), NLSIU Bangalore (assitant prof Prof Gowthaman Ranganathan), NLU Delhi, RGNUL Punjab and TNNLU Tiruchirapalli.

September 2020 hires: 25 NLU LLBs, JGLS largest number

In the September 2020 batch of 102 faculty recruits, JGLS itself was top of the list of LLB alma mater, providing 9 hires, followed by CNLU Patna (5), DSNLU Vishakhapatnam (4), and three each from Aligarh Muslim University, Delhi University, GGSIPU, NLIU Bhopal, NLU Jodhpur, Pune University, Delhi University and NUJS Kolkata.

A total of 24 had completed their LLB degrees at various NLUs, notably:

  • 5 from CNLU,
  • 4 from DSNLU,
  • 3 from NLIU Bhopal, NLU Jodhpur and NUJS,
  • 2 from RGNUL Patiala, and
  • one each from GNLU Gandhinagar, HNLU, Nalsar Hyderabad, NLUJA Assam and RMLNLU Lucknow.

NLU Jodhpur provided two assistant professors (Prof Tariang Bdap Dkhar and Prof Julie Roy), while one assistant professor had completed an LLB from NLIU (Prof Chetna Shrivastava).

The lecturer ranks included one each from NLU Jodhpur, GNLU, NUJS, CNLU and NLIU.

Hires by position

As in September, the greatest number of hires are at the more junior end, which makes sense as the university has been expanding its online postgraduate programmes considerably and trying to keep up its faculty student ratio of around 8:1.

We have reached out for comment what the new BCI announcement that purports to scrap the one year LLM could mean, and will be publishing a fuller analysis and speculation shortly.

For reference about the below seniorities, JGLS’ “cost to university (CTU)” of a professor was around Rs 40 lakh per annum, while assistant professors were at around Rs 20 lakhs per annum, we had reported in February.

64 from January 2021

The faculty hires announced in January 2021 include:

  • 2 Assistant Professors (AP),
  • 7 Lecturers (L)
  • 18 Assistant Lecturers (AL)
  • 37 Academic Tutors (AT) & TRIPS fellows

103 from September 2020
