About NSLR:

Nalsar Student Law Review is the flagship publication of NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad, India.

We take pride in being one of India’s very few and foremost student publications— which is both student-edited and solely dedicated to student submissions.

Call for Papers:

The Editorial Board of the journal invites student submissions for its upcoming issue (Vol. 9).

You can send your submissions in the form of articles, notes, case comments, legislative comments, book reviews or movie reviews (original and unpublished).

  • Articles are lengthy publications that provide sustained theoretical analysis on legal topics. It is a comprehensive survey of relevant literature on the chosen subject leading to formulation of viable assertions.
  • Notes are a comparatively shorter version of articles which indicate a central thesis and argument flowing throughout the piece.
  • Case Comments/Legislative Comments keep in tandem with the latest legal developments in the legislative and judicial branches of India. The author chooses a suitably relevant and recent case or legislation (Central or State) to critique upon, in a manner which contrasts the case or statute with the existing legal position and indicates the present and future debates on the topic.
  • Book Reviews critically examine a book released within the two years preceding the release of that particular issue of the NSLR. Movie reviews critically examine a movie, linking it to larger debates in critical legal studies, legal theory and philosophy. The book or movie review shall entail an examination of ideas promoted by the author of the book from the point of view of originality, extent of analysis and tenability.
