Glocalex is pleased to announce their first Article Writing Competition (The Writing Oasis) 2020.
This competition is open to articles written by undergraduate law students from any recognised university/college.
Glocalex’s Writing Oasis aims to encourage law students across various colleges, through a quality article writing competition to develop an original thought process and analyse not only international but also municipal contemporary issues adversely affecting humankind.
The pre-condition is to understand the role of law and to find innovative solutions to the problems. Our primary objective is to develop a sense of enthusiasm among law students towards legal research and provide them an opportunity to exhibit their skills.
The students participating will not only get a chance to win cash prizes, internship opportunities and publication at Glocalex but will also help them widen their perspective while elucidating on various legal aspects.
Glocalex is making its efforts to be the Jurisprudential Axis of the World. Writing oasis will be aiming to cover global issues adversely affecting the community:
