About the Review
RGNUL Financial and Mercantile Law Review was set up as an academic initiative to promote research and debate in areas of financial and economic law.
The Review looks to understand the legal paradigm prevalent in India and South East Asia and how it affects finance and other cross border mercantile activities.
The Journal aims at giving an opportunity to legal academia, research scholars, legal practitioners and students to publish work that is at the cutting edge of doctrinal, theoretical, and empirical research.
About the new ‘Sectoral Series’
RFMLR is initiating a discourse on the sectors of the Indian economy through the medium of blogs. The aim is to analyse each sector of economy vis-à-vis recent and projected policy changes.
The series shifts its focus every three weeks. After an overwhelming response for our previous themes, the ‘Ailing Aviation Sector’ and the ‘Progressing Pharmaceutical Sector’, RFMLR Sidebar is back with another sector of the Indian Economy.
The next theme in the series is, “Transforming Telecom Sector: A Legal and Economic Analysis”, and some of the suggested (not exhaustive) sub-themes are:
- The Huawei Crisis: An Analysis from the Perspective of the Indian Telecom Sector
- Regulation of OTT (Over-the-top) Applications at par with Telecom Service Providers: A need of the hour?
- A Critical Analysis of the TRAI Consultation Paper on Increasing the Scope of Telecom Infrastructure Companies
