  • It shall be in Microsoft word format, Times New Roman font, 12 pt. font size and 1.5 line spacing.
  • The main text shall be divided into different sub-headings. Different levels of headings shall
  • be formatted as follows:
    • Level one heading: It shall be numbered and in the center.
    • Level two heading: It shall be left aligned and in bold letters.
    • Level three heading: It shall be left aligned and italicized.
  • All manuscripts shall include an ‘Introduction’ and ‘Conclusion’.

  • Quotations within a sentence must be enclosed in double quotation marks (“ ”). A quotation within a quotation should be enclosed in single quotation marks (‘ ’).
  • A quotation longer than three lines should be set out in a separate block indented from both the left and right margins. Do not enclose the quotation in quotation marks. A quotation is introduced with a colon (:)
  • When referring to a section or article of a statute in the main text, the word ‘section’/‘article’ should neither be abbreviated nor capitalized. However, in the footnotes, the sections/ articles should be abbreviated. E.g. The Constitution of India, art. 30; The Indian Penal Code, s. 42.

Footnote Format

JJL prefers footnotes (to endnotes) because of the following reasons:

  • To identify the source of quotations or paraphrases;
  • To acknowledge indebtedness for words, phrases or ideas borrowed;
  • To explain where additional evidence or commentary may be found;
  • To provide additional material or discussion that is relevant but which would disrupt the flow of the text, if it were included in the main text itself, and
  • To refer the reader to other parts of the paper
  • To enable the reader to read the reference without having to turn to the end of the text which would otherwise tend to disrupt the flow of the text and hamper smooth reading.

Citation Format

The JJL will refer to a set pattern of citation (i.e., ILI Rules of Footnoting or Bluebook 20th ed.,).
