Call for Blogs: Droit Penale NewsLetter: No Fee, Submission on Rolling Basis

About the Organization

“DROIT PENALE: The Indian Law Journal on Crime and Criminology (ILJCC)”, aims to resolve this dubiousness by providing a wide range of well-researched articles, case notes, commentaries etc. covering the major aspects and issues under the ambit of crime and criminology.

The term ‘Droit Penale’, literally means criminal law. It has a French origin and deals with the various facets of crime and criminology. As a huge field of academic study, Criminology tends to cover criminal law and jurisprudence apart from dealing with crimes and criminal and socially deviant behaviour of criminals existing in society.

It also deals with decriminalisation processes. While Criminal law mainly focuses on the punishments coupled or labelled with such criminal behaviour.
