Philanthropic support helps JSW Law to provide full scholarships for entering students, most of whom come from very modest backgrounds. This allows JSW Law to admit the best and the brightest students from a diversity of circumstances, developing the future leadership of Bhutan.  Philanthropic support also enables students to assist the community and gain real-life legal experience through legal clinics, supports faculty positions and training, and advances our green campus initiative.

One thing that really inspired me to apply for JSW School of Law was the very impressive selection criteria that they presented to us. literally tests your analytical, critical and reasoning skills. And the interview that is the last phase of the selection criteria is one of the most interesting parts because it really examines the core of the kind of person you are.
