Jindal Law and Humanities Review: Call for Papers
Jindal Law and Humanities Review (JLHR) is a student-run, peer-reviewed publication, brought out by Jindal Global Law School, O.P.Jindal Global University. The journal, by challenging the distinction between law and non-law and positing the relationship between law and society as foundational to jurisprudence, constitutionalism, and the everyday realities of law aims to explore how the law interacts with the humanities.
Jindal Law and Humanities Review wishes to further the enterprise inaugurated by interdisciplinary journals in India and around the world by delving into the ways of engaging with sociology, anthropology, history, legal literature, and the like while provoking a larger experience of producing varied forms of work on law and humanities through creative forms of expression.
