The law school aspires to become the first campus in Bhutan and in South Asia to fully integrate cutting-edge green campus materials and practices, and thereby be a role model throughout the region. Experts have been engaged from around the world to advise on the construction. Specific initiatives include a mix of electricity and solar power for campus-wide lighting and water heating, state-of-the-art sewerage and kitchen-waste treatment systems, and rainwater harvesting and treatment facilities.
The permanent campus of JSW Law will be located in Pangbisa, Paro, only ten kilometers from Bhutan’s only international airport. This purpose-built campus is located on land specifically selected and contributed by His Majesty The King.
The campus adheres to traditional Bhutanese design, but also incorporates international-standard energy efficiency principles, in order to achieve a campus that is safe, comfortable, and conducive to living and studying.
While construction proceeds on our permanent campus in Pangbisa, Paro, the JSW Law community resides in temporary facilities in Taba, Thimphu. The “academic campus,” as it is called, features separate residence halls for men and women, classrooms, faculty office space, a library, a recreation room, and a student cafeteria. All students are boarders, and there are no fees for residence.
