About the CGLI

The Center for Global Law Initiatives (CGLI) at Galgotias School of Law is an independent Center that encourages advanced research and education to address global legal challenges. The CGLI aims to provide a platform at Galgotias School of Law for collaborative research and education between the legal academy and legal practice by connecting the two sectors. The Center aims to initiate a creative dialog among faculty, students, and legal experts in the world, facilitating our innovative and cooperative research.

The Center hosts lectures, conferences, seminars, workshops and symposia on various global legal concerns. The Center invites both scholars and practitioners as Faculty and Research Fellows and Visiting Scholars at Galgotias University, developing our collaborative network among those seeking innovative approaches to global legal challenges.


CGLI can function as a think tank of the school

  1. Teaching: to provide lectures, symposia, and conferences in the area of global law;
  2. Research: to provide students with valuable research opportunities and the chance to work directly with faculty members on projects at the cores of their scholarly agendas; and to commit interdisciplinary study and bridge-building between academia and the world of practice by the collaborative research project.
  3. International Tie-ups: to promote international cooporation of the school of law.
