Call for Blogs by Economics Law and Social Sciences Review (ELSR): Rolling Submissions

Economics Law and Social Sciences Review (ELSR) is inviting submissions by way of a call for blogs.

About the Blog

ELSR is a student-run and peer-reviewed blog. The blog was founded by students of various National Law Universities and is professionally backed by legal as well as non-legal luminaries like Professor Venkat Rao, Professor RK Bhatnagar, Senior Advocate NL Rajah and Ruchi Pant (Head- Natural Resource Management and Biodiversity, UNDP) amongst others. We here at ELS Review focus on inter-disciplinary discovery and dissection of law. We attempt to escape from the four walls of the statutes and synthesize thoughts and ideas from other disciplines so as to link them with law.

Law cannot be understood in pure isolation and it is bound to intersect with disciplines like economics, philosophy, politics, and sociology, for the law is not what is drafted by the legislatures and crafted by the judges; it is something everyone including you and we interacts with, on a daily basis.

ELSR strives to bring forth academically excellent content across various fields of Law and Social Sciences which includes Economics, History, Politics among others.
