National Law University Jodhpur Law Review (NLUJ Law Review)




Call For Submissions

NLUJ Law Review is the flagship publication of National Law University, Jodhpur (NLUJ). The Review is student-edited and publishes one volume every year comprising of two separate issues. Each issue contains submissions by law students and professors, practicing lawyers and other members of the legal fraternity.

The Review has, in its past issues published articles written by students from across the country on a variety of contemporary issues ranging from the fiercely debated Vodafone judgment to areas like environmental pollution, child labour, trial by media etc. which are less publicized but no less relevant.

Keeping with this tradition of publishing articles of relevance, the Editorial Board once again invites original and unpublished Articles, Notes and Book Reviews for the Review’s upcoming Issue 2 of Volume 2. Although the Review accepts submissions on a rolling basis throughout the year, the last date for a submission to be considered for publication in Volume 2, Number 2 is March 10, 2014.
