National Law School Journal of National Law School of India University: Call for Papers
The National Law School of India University (NLSIU) in Bangalore invites contributions for the upcoming edition of the National Law School Journal (NLSJ) which is a peer-reviewed journal edited by faculty members at the NLSIU, Bangalore. This year we are going to revive this publication with the objective of deepening discussions on legal and policy reform in India.
The submissions should be in the form of
- Long Articles (8,000-12,000 words)
- Shorter Essays (5,000-8,000 words)
- Comments on Judicial Decisions (3,000-5,000 words),
- Analysis of Legislative Materials (3,000-5,000 words) and
- Reviews of recently published books (2,000-3,000 words); besides other forms of Scholarly writing.
While there are no rigid thematic constraints, we expect contributions to be largely within the rubric of legal studies and allied interdisciplinary scholarship. The National Law School Journal seeks pieces authored by practitioners, academicians and researchers. This implies that those enrolled in research degrees (e.g. M. Phil, PhD. and comparable programmes) are welcome to contribute.
The deadline for accepting submissions is 30th November, 2012.
The same may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org (preferably in MS Word format) along with a covering letter addressed to Dr. Sarasu Esther Thomas (Chief Editor, National Law School Journal 2012-2013). The covering letter should include the author's contact information and a short abstract that outlines the main questions or themes addressed in the paper.
All submissions will go through an initial round of review by the editorial board and the selected pieces will subsequently be sent for peer-review before finalisation for publication. We encourage potential contributors to adhere to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation, 19th edn. (2010). All queries may be directed to the above-mentioned e-mail address.
