The Indian law journal on crime and criminology (ILJCC) bearing ISSN 2456-7280.


A question often arises as to what is the difference between criminal law and criminology or between criminal justice and criminology. “DROIT PENALE: The Indian Law Journal on Crime and Criminology (ILJCC)”, aims to resolve this dubiousness by providing a wide range of well researched articles, case notes, commentaries etc. covering the major aspects and issues under the ambit of crime and criminology.

The term ‘Droit Penale’, literally means criminal law. It has a French origin and deals with the various facets of crime and criminology.

As a huge field of academic study, Criminology tends to cover criminal law and jurisprudence apart from dealing with crimes and criminal and socially deviant behaviour of criminals existing in the society.

It also deals with the decriminalisation processes. While Criminal law mainly focuses on the punishments coupled or labelled with such a criminal behaviour.

The ILJCC, a student friendly law journal, has emerged bearing the idea to encapsulate an exhaustive approach towards all these fields. It aims at providing a detailed analysis and assimilation of various issues on a single rostrum contrary to the concept of dealing with fields of criminal law and criminology separately.

Further the journal will also feature the works, opinions and viewpoints of the greatest jurists of all times blended with the modern critical approaches towards their work. The IJLCC is committed to provide uncommon, unique and fresh probe into the core legal issues.
