About Us

The Jindal Society of International Law is a student-led initiative under the aegis of the Centre for the Study of United Nations, and guidance of Faculty Coordinator Professor (Dr.) Vesselin Popovski. Founded in 2020, this Society is an initiative to provide a platform to young international law enthusiasts. The inaugural address and official launch of the Society was on November 18, 2020. It was inaugurated by Herbert and Rose Rubin Professor of International Law, Jose Enrique Alvarez of New York University, along with the Vice-Chancellor Professor (Dr.) C. Raj Kumar, Faculty Coordinator Professor (Dr.) Vesselin Popovski and Dean of Office of International Affairs and Global Initiatives, Prof (Dr.) Mohan Kumar. 


The purpose of this Society is to increase student interaction with the subject matter of International Law through its various initiatives. Rather than being primarily research-driven, we intend to offer a host of experiences that contribute towards skill-building, thereby increasing the knowledge database available to students. This Society is an attempt to bridge the lacuna by streamlining resources and inculcating an overall interest in the vast expanses of International Law. We aim to provide a space to young international law enthusiasts to nurture their interest in the field.
