Call for Papers: Socio-legal Review Volume 15(1) by NLSIU: Submit by Nov 1

The Socio-legal Review (SLR) is accepting submissions for its Volume 15(1). SLR is a bi-annual, student edited journal published by the National Law School of India University. It was first published in 2005 and has, over the past few years, carried articles by luminaries in the legal and social field such as Rajeev Dhavan, Roger Cotterrell, W.T. Murphy and Asghar Ali Engineer.

It aims to be a forum that involves, promotes and engages scholars and students to express and share their ideas and opinions on themes and methodologies relating to the interface between law and society.

SLR is currently looking at articles for its Volume 15(1) to be released in Spring 2019. We have a broad mandate and look at any articles with a perceivable link between law and society, particularly in a South Asian context. We accept submissions on a rolling basis. Consequently, we never reject articles for failing to meet a deadline.

However, submissions received after November 1, 2018 might have to be considered for publication in the issue to follow.

We also welcome submissions for the Socio-Legal Review Forum. The Forum was conceptualised as a platform for informed debate on contemporary developments. The Forum acts as an online companion to our print journal.

It accepts short pieces in the form of comments on recent legal developments or book reviews engaging with recent literature. Longer pieces in the form of essays or responses to pieces published in the Review are also accepted.


To contribute a piece for the Forum, please write to us at [email protected].
