  1. I would like to point out that not only is this particular ‘call for papers’ not pointing out the institution to which it belongs, but it has also furnished a false ISSN number (I have checked it on the ISSN portal). Under the circumstances, it is my opinion that this is a fraudulent attempt to collect research papers, using the ‘NLU’ phrase simply to lure gullible students.

    I request the admin to please take down this post.

    • Dear Souradeep,

      The journal is not affiliated to any institution. It is a student-run journal. The members of the Editorial Collective are from three different National Law Universities. The ISSN is initially assigned on the temporary basis. It usually takes 3-4 months for permanent assignment of ISSN. The ISSN can be found in the ISSN register only after its permanent assignment. For any other query, you can drop us an email on

      Warm Regards,
      Outreach Editor
