Editorial Policy and Guidelines:
The National Law Institute University has been established by the Act No. 41 of 1997 of the Madhya Pradesh Legislature and the university has been successful in instilling a sense of broad perspective along with scholastic and reflexive capabilities bearing in mind larger national and humanitarian goals in its students. The university intends to invoke discussions and ventilation to the thought provoking ideas on varied legal issues to the legal scholars, jurists and students in India and abroad.
The Indian Law Review aims at providing an anvil on which the legislations, judgments and legal policies are discussed and given a desired and fruitful shape with a holistic approach to serve the cause of justice.
The ILR seeks to publish legal writings of scholarly nature. Clarity of thought and expression is mandatory. The interdisciplinary approach on legal issues from specialists of other disciplines is also welcome. Though there are no hard and fast rules for scholarship, but the editorial policy suggests that generally the articles will be 8000- 10,000 words which will either develop a theory or applied law on research findings.
A comment is a shorter version of 4,000-5000 words which discusses a legal issue, case law or legal policy expressing comment on the flaw (if any) and offering a right (in the opinion of the author) direction on the highlighted issue. Notes and reviews are of descriptive summary of a judgment, new legislation, and legal policy with contemporary importance in social or legal context. A book review also falls in the same category.
The purpose of notes and reviews is to acquaint the reader with the contemporary developments in the legal field.
