The National Law School Journal seeks pieces authored by practitioners, academicians and researchers. This implies that those enrolled in research degrees (e.g. M. Phil, PhD. and comparable programmes) are welcome to contribute.
However, we will not be accepting submissions from students who are presently enrolled in taught programmes.
