Cup of Court is a peer-reviewed academic blog, an online forum devised by students of Gujarat National Law University. It aims to provide a platform to initiate discussion on contemporary issues and their pertinence to different fields of law, public policy, international relations, political science and economics. Our mission is to highlight the voices of budding legal professionals and scholars by giving them a space to share high-quality and reliable publications.
Blog posts should be thought-provoking and accessible. We invite content in the form of reviews and pre-views, interviews, political and legal commentary, media analyses, reports on current events, cultural critiques and observations, short films and audio material.
