The Shimla Law Review is envisioned to be an annual publication, owned and I published by the HPNLU, Shimla. The Periodical is intended to provide a forum for faculty members, research scholars, judges, and students. It is not confined to the discipline of law but allows the contributors to take a call on the age-old tradition of legal scholarship.
It is open to tread beyond the established modes of reflection or exposition on select central ideas, concepts, tools, and techniques that are evidently integral to or associated with the legal academic discourse.
Further, SLR does not consider the task of legal education institutions to be limited to devising some expedient ideational mechanism to deal with diverse legal issues. The topography, where the University is located, resembles the terrains of the law and provides the most conducive opportunity for a publication such as the SLR that dwells deeper into the realms and nuances of these terrains of the law and legal system.
