Dean, Vice Dean contribute letter to Kuensel

Today’s Kuensel features a two-page opinion letter titled “JSW School of Law’s first class,” co-authored by Dean Sangay Dorjee and Vice Dean Michael Peil.  The letter is a response to a series of questions and challenges set out by DrukAir lawyer Namgyel Wangchuk in a Kuensel letter the previous week.

The article describes the curriculum, admissions standards, and other unique aspects of the law school, and explains the rationale and preparatory work behind each aspect.
