Call for Editors @ Law Press Online’s Bi-Annual Journals: Apply by March 31

About the organisation:

Law Press Online (www.lawpress.online) is a recently pioneered online law publication. We publish a number of online journals on contemporary legal developments and key disciplines viz. constitutional law, criminal law, corporate law, IPR, and technology law. It is a medium for legal scholars – be it law students, academicians, professionals, or judges – to make original contributions to the legal field.

Law Press also publishes a blog on myriad legal issues. Our endeavour is to contribute to legal scholarship, offer a stage for discussion on the most important and relevant legal issues and encourages reflection among scholars.

Law Press publishes all its journals online which are accessible to everyone without the subscription. We believe in sharing
knowledge and providing scholars with a more accessible platform.

Needless to add, Law Press loves nature and avoid cutting trees to print our journals on paper.
