University of Galway School of Law, Ireland, and Symbiosis Law School of Pune, India, have renewed their existing partnership at a signing ceremony held at Symbiosis’s campus on 12th April 2024. The Dean of University of Galway School of Law, Professor Martin Hogg, visited Symbiosis Law School for a ceremony to sign a renewed memorandum of understanding, which commits the two institutions to work together to develop mutual teaching and research opportunities. Dean Hogg was welcomed by the Director of Symbiosis Law School, Professor Shashikala Gurpur, and her colleagues, joining him in signing the new memorandum of understanding. Dean Hogg also met with Symbiosis Law School faculty members to discuss potential research collaborations and with Symbiosis students to discuss opportunities for them to pursue Master’s and doctoral studies at University of Galway. Both law schools are well-matched, being highly ranked institutions: University of Galway is ranked in the QS World University Rankings as a top 150 law school, and Symbiosis is the top-ranked private law school in India.

Speaking of the renewed partnership, Professor Gurpur said, “The synergy of SIU and University of Galway and the past collaborations in faculty and student mobility are institutionalised with this MOU. SIU’s pioneer role in global and EU Legal Studies and all-round internationalisation of legal education, get new booster hereby. We look forward to joint research, publications, collaborative online learning and exchange of best practices to strengthen our global competencies further.”

Dean Hogg added: “I am very excited and honoured to have visited Symbiosis Law School to mark the renewal of our strong and fruitful partnership. Ireland is the leading common law jurisdiction in the European Union and India one of the most prominent common law jurisdictions of the world, and our renewed commitment to work together builds upon the strong foundations of our legal jurisdictions and the excellence of our faculty members and students. I am looking forward to welcoming Symbiosis graduates to University of Galway and to the mutual learning experiences which such visits will afford.”
