Studies (GJLS). It is an online, peer-reviewed, interactive journal. The
Journal emphasizes on the dynamic function and influence of the law
in society and how it contributes to the engineering of social change.
It aims for an interdisciplinary approach and provides a platform for
scholarly thoughts, opinions, ideas, concepts, and proposals from
diverse disciplines and demographics.
The Journal seeks to publish articles on diverse contemporary issues
involving the integration and congruence of law, social science,
technology and political efforts to combat the ecological imbalance
without sacrificing and further embracing global progression. It
provides a platform in protecting and encouraging research
development, creativity, and its ultimate contribution to society
through intellectual contributions. The scope of scholarly articles
published in the journal is unrestricted. It is the author’s prerogative to

Call for Papers 2023 :
The Journal Committee of the School of Law, Galgotias University hereby invites Articles, Case comments and Book Reviews on the contemporary topics of law
and allied inter-disciplinary subjects for publication in the GJLS 2023 Vol. XI,
Issue No. 2. The journal is a peer reviewed ISSN Serial No. 2321- 1997
publication from School of Law, Galgotias University. It uses an
interdisciplinary perspective to examine modern legal challenges and
difficulties. The dynamics of socio-legal, political, and economic developments
occurring on a worldwide scale have resulted in symmetrical shifts in the
prevailing legal paradigms. As a natural sub-theorem, it has generated fresh
academic incentives for an in-depth examination in the field of law.
The School of law, through GJLS aspires to become the paragon of legal
education by promoting the integration of knowledge and best practices
throughout academia and the research community. GJLS strives to integrate
shifting legal viewpoints in both a domestic and international context and
encourages scholars, academicians, and practitioner’s communities to face
some of the most serious legal challenges that plague civil society. Beginning
with a wall and an online journal, GJLS has already produced 10 volumes,
demonstrating our dedication to ethical endeavors and our determination to
become a beacon for academic excellence.
The Editorial Board of GJLS is invested in enhancing the journal’s quality on a
