About Call for Papers 2020

The Journal Committee of School of Law, Galgotias University hereby
invites articles/ research papers, case studies, and book reviews on the
contemporary topics of law and allied inter-disciplinary subjects for
publication in the Galgotias Journal of Legal Studies (GJLS) 2020 GJLS Vol.
VIII, Issue No. 1 & 2. The journal is a peer reviewed ISSN Serial No. 2321-
1997 publication from School of Law, Galgotias University. It showcases
contemporary issues and challenges specific to law, with an inter-disciplinary approach towards assimilating knowledge. It is an endeavor of the Institute to become the beacon of legal education by encouraging synthesis of knowledge and best practices cutting across the academia and researchfraternity.
The dynamics of socio-legal, political and economic changes taking place in
the global scenario has brought symmetric changes in the hitherto existing
legal paradigms. As a natural sub-theorem, it has led to new scholastic
inducements for in depth analysis in the sphere of law. Matching the pace, our journal ‘Galgotias Journal of Legal Studies’ strenuously endeavors to
assimilate changing legal perspectives both in native and global context and
intends to impel intellectual fraternity to address some of the pressing legal
issues which bother the civil society. Beginning from a wall and web-journal, we have published in volumes of the journal which is the testimony of our principled effort.
The Editorial Board of Galgotias Journal of Legal Studies is committed to
constantly upgrade the quality of journal and incessantly continues to propel itself to accomplish its well cherished objective to become a reputed, refereed and peer reviewed journal benefitting the law students plus academicians in particular and society in general.
