"The University’s Law School recently revealed its new partnerships with four of India’s top law schools, which will encourage collaboration between students and faculty of the universities. In addition, the program aims to increase the University of Kansas’s visibility in India, enhancing job opportunities for law students from all universities involved.

'There’s a great demand for lawyers in many other countries,' said Raj Bhala, associate dean for international and comparative law and Rice Distinguished Professor at the University. 'Many transactions are across borders, especially when you look at the potential with India. We want our students to have opportunities not only in Western regions, but also in these important emerging markets.'"
