- Volume: XII
- Deadline: To be considered for the next issue of the journal (2024), submissions must reach before November 31st, 2023
- Submission Categories: Contributions are solicited under the following heads & All word limits are exclusive of footnotes.:
- Articles – 4,500 – 7,000 words
- Articles should contain sustained analysis on legal topics. They may be either doctrinal or theoretical (or both) and must comprehensively deal with all relevant literature on the chosen subject to formulate well-reasoned positions. An Article is therefore ordinarily conservative in its method of analysis.
- Essays– 3,000 – 4,500 words
- Essays, in comparison with Articles, are usually more adventurous in their method, and seek to challenge existing legal paradigms or innovatively address well known problems. It is strongly recommended that essays be considerably more concise, in terms of scope and conceptualization. Fresh approaches to be decided issues are encouraged.
- Case comments and legislative comments – 1,500 – 3,000 words
- Case comments should be a study of any contemporary judicial pronouncement (Indian or foreign) and must contain its analysis, the context in which it has been delivered, its contribution to existing law, and must necessarily comment on the judicial process involved. Legislative comments entail a critical analysis of any existing Indian legislation or proposed Bills and their constitutional implications. Critical, comparative piecesdealing with similar issues across jurisdictions are encouraged.
- Other submissions – 1,500-3,000 words
- Other pieces that do not specifically fall into any of the aforementioned sections will also be considered.
