Call for Book Reviews: RGNUL Student Research Review (RSRR) Journal: Rolling Submission

The RSRR Editorial Board invites submissions from students, academicians, lawyers and other professionals from the legal fraternity on a rolling basis. The selected book reviews will be published on the website of RSRR.

Call for Book Reviews

Books are a powerhouse of utility. Even in the legal field, books form an important source of information for scholars, academicians, students, inter alia. They, thus, require critical analysis. A book review is descriptive and analytical. It entails a dispassionate evaluation of the quality, meaning and significance of a book. It focuses on the body of research, which readers do not delve into.

Through this initiative, RSRR aims to critically examine the ideas promoted by the author of any legal literature with originality and legal tenability. The aim is to provide a holistic understanding and a balanced critique of books that have a legal central theme. The book can be fiction, non-fiction, autobiography, etc. as long as its primary focus is on the law.
