Case Comments are pieces which seek to either support or critique contemporary judicial
decisions. Such decisions may be Indian or foreign. Ideally, a Case Comment should contain

on the judicial process involved.

discouraged and must be brought to the attention of the JBIL Editor-in-Chief. Unless
otherwise clearly noted, all manuscripts are expected to be original.
