The NALSAR International Law Journal is a student edited, peer reviewed Journal published bi-annually by the International Law Society at NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad.

The Journal seeks to promote the growth and engagement of scholarship in the field of international law, and provides for a forum for the active discussion of legal issues within the domain of both public and private international law.
