Congratulations to the Jigme Singye Wangchuck School of Law, the first law school in the history of the Kingdom of Bhutan. The law school is welcoming 25 fortunate law students from all across Bhutan. They begin their orientation classes today, Monday, July 3, 2017.
Opening the first law school in any country is a tremendous accomplishment. Special congratulations to the visionary Bhutanese leaders and lawyers who are supporting this new school, and to Michael Peil and Judy Stark, who have devoted several years to making this special day possible.
For those of you who would like to know more about the school, the New York Times did a story about the law school back in October 2016.
