The CLIS Blog is a blog established under the aegis of Centre for Litigation Studies, a student-run body at the National Law University, Jodhpur. The body is independently formed by some litigation enthusiasts of NLU, Jodhpur to promote and encourage litigation as a career option among the students.
The centre is aimed at organising lectures and other activities with a special focus on the practical understanding of procedural laws. One of the major projects we undertake is “The Intra-University Public Interest Litigation Filing Competition”, which is organised annually in a bid to make the students familiar with the filing of a PIL.
Authors: We invite submissions from litigators, legal scholars, law students and other authors Ejusdem Generis. Co-authorship is permitted to a maximum of two authors.
Owing to the nature of our centre, we don’t put fetters on the subject matter. Articles on any aspect/subject of law are accepted. However, articles closely related to the procedural aspects of litigation are encouraged.
The content of the article should be both original and unpublished as it would be subjected to a Plagiarism Check.
The submission should be made in Microsoft Word Format.
The length of the article should preferably be between 1000-1500 words. However, this requirement would be flexible at the discretion of the Editorial Board.
Font Style and Size
All submissions must be in Times New Roman.
The font size should be 12 with line spacing of 1.5 and the text should be justified.
For citing references, use of Hyperlinks will be encouraged.
For sources that cannot be hyperlinked, we expect a uniform citation.
How to Submit?
Contributors must send their entries via email to clisnluj[at]gmail.comwith a short bio of the author(s) specifying their name and the institution they are affiliated to. The author(s) should also submit a relevant photograph regarding the subject matter of the article if they wish to have a photographic preview of the blog posts on our page and social media handles.
No comment capable of revealing the identity of the author(s) is to be made in the article itself. (The identity should only be mentioned in the body of the email)
The subject of the email should be “BLOG SUBMISSION”.
Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the calendar year.
The Editorial Board will have the sole authority in accepting, rejecting or suggesting modifications to the submissions.
CLIS Blog follows a double-blind peer review policy, which we undertake to complete within 14 days of submission. However, the acknowledgement receipt of your draft would be sent within 2 days of submission.
Please note that the articles which merely summarise a case, or are of descriptive nature, are discouraged. We give preference to articles which include a critical analysis or explore the wider arena of law and litigation.
