Indian Law Review: Call for Papers
Indian Law Review, Journal of the National Law Institute University invites articles, notes, comments, book reviews on contemporary legal issues or policy from the faculty and students of law Universities/Departments in India and abroad for the Vol.VI.
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.
