Bhutan-India Friendship Shines Bright at New Campus of JSW Law

In a momentous celebration that echoed with the spirit of unity and shared values, the Jigme Singye Wangchuck School of Law (JSW Law) consecrated its new campus in Pangbisa, Paro, on the auspicious 21st day of the Eighth month. The ceremony, known as tashi rabney, was graced by the presence of His Majesty The King, His Majesty the Fourth Gyalpo, His Royal Highness The Gyalsey, and esteemed members of the Royal Family, along with donors, partners, and proud alumni.

The rabney ceremony marked a historic occasion, symbolizing the realization of a dream that stands at the heart of His Majesty’s vision – to establish a just society anchored in the rule of law. The campus itself stands as a testament to this vision, seamlessly blending tradition with innovation and offering state-of-the-art facilities with a strong focus on sustainability.

One of the most awe-inspiring moments of the ceremony was the Tashi Ngasoel, a ritual that sought the blessings of His Majesty The King and His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo for the future success of JSW Law. It was a visual spectacle, showcasing the breathtaking beauty and symbolism embodied by the law school campus.

HRH Princess Sonam Dechan Wangchuck, the President of JSW Law, along with members of the institution, expressed their deep gratitude to Their Majesties through a symbolic offering of Buelwa. The ceremony was further adorned with soul-stirring musical tributes performed by both renowned artists and talented students.

JSW Law occupies a unique place as Bhutan’s first and only law school, established by Royal Charter in 2015. What sets it apart is its pioneering curriculum, which weaves Bhutanese values and traditions into a comprehensive legal education. With two batches of homegrown law graduates already contributing significantly to Bhutan’s legal landscape, the school embodies the spirit of progress and commitment to Their Majesties’ noble vision for their people.

A heartwarming moment during the Tashi Rabney Ceremony was when Dean Sangay Dorjee, representing the JSW Law family, presented Ambassador of India to Bhutan Sudhakar Dalela with a Jamkar-White Manjushri. This gesture stood as a sincere token of gratitude to the Government of India and its people for their unwavering support of the Law School. It underscored the special friendship that exists between Bhutan and India, which goes beyond borders, emphasizing shared values and cooperation.

As JSW Law’s new campus stands tall, it not only signifies the institution’s remarkable journey but also its enduring commitment to fulfill the noble vision and aspirations set forth by Their Majesties. The consecration of this campus serves as a vivid testament to the extraordinary friendship and unwavering support shared between Bhutan and India, fostering deeper bonds of cooperation and understanding between the two nations.
