downloadThe Centre for Social Justice of Institute of Law, Nirma University cordially invites the submissions to the Journal for Centre of Social Justice (JCSJ), Vol. I, Issue I.

Center for Social Justice has been set up as a research centre to allow free expression of ideas and thoughts upon the issues that affect the closely inter-woven fabric of law and society in any manner whatsoever. The Centre as a part of its aim and object wishes to provide a platform whereby these views can be expressed and discussed upon after it comes to the knowledge of the society at large.

As the Centre has been striving hard to promote awareness amongst the law as well as non-law community upon the various social issues relating to injustice and intervention that it requires, so the need was felt to encourage academicians, advocates as well as law and non-law professionals and most importantly students to pen down their thoughts and manner in which they feel the problems now faced by the society can be resolved.

In order to realize this high ambition and also due to the constant encouragement provided by the Institute, the Centre has decided to launch the Journal for Centre of Social Justice (JCSJ) [ISSN] and seeks contributions from all the academicians, advocates, law as well as non-law professionals and students for its flagship issue.
