NALSAR Student Law Review is the flagship publication of NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad, India. It publishes two issues each year, one of which is a special issue dedicated to a topic of contemporary relevance.

The Editorial Board of the journal invites student submissions for its upcoming issue (Vol. 9). You can send your submissions in the form of articles, notes, case comments, legislative comments, book reviews or movie reviews (original and unpublished).
