The Law Review Anthology is a student-led digital project founded by the students of various law schools to provide a space for a discourse on law and society unconstrained by form, subject or genre, and publish articles, and essays with legal practitioners and students.
About the Journal
The desire to launch a legal publication was born out of our respective frustrations at the state of contemporary legal publishing in India, the number of dodgy academic journals, and indeed cultural and political commentary in the country. The established legal publications at home seemed to be closed shops, conservative either in their politics or their tastes.
The Law Review Anthology lamented the decline of cultural criticism and essay-length journalism, forms which seemed increasingly in danger of confinement to the ivory tower. We were exasperated that insightful legal writing, so central to our society, were so often made
inaccessible to audiences without the theoretical training demanded by gatekeepers determined to protect their own territory.
The Law Review Anthology borrowed a name from La Revue Blanche, a publication edited by the art critic Félix Fénéon which took up many of the principles they sought to appropriate for ourselves to publish ambitious, innovative writing; to bring law and society together; to publish a new generation of writers; to engage with the world around us.
The Law Review Anthology publish intelligent, thought-provoking and well-written original articles related to law and society. They write on various contemporary issues and cover areas as wide as Commercial Law, Foreign affairs, Economics, Military Policy, Jurisprudence, Politics, Philosophy, Culture and Gender Studies.
