Editorial Guidelines

We open a call for blogs, on any advanced legal topic based on these simple guidelines:

  • Word limit should not be beyond 2,500 words. If an article is longer that the prescribed limit, it may be considered to be published in 2 or more parts.

  • If footnotes are used, please use the OSCOLA form of citation. We however recommend hyperlinks instead of footnotes wherever possible. Alternatively, we will allow the usage of number-based placeholders in ISO 690/IEEE citation style.

  • Any article which does not comply with the guidelines, and the basic standards of legal writing, can be rejected from being published.

  • We will explain the ideas in the blog in graphic form, hence kindly ensure that the writing style of the article is simple and lucid.

  • Any student of law, professional or academic in the field of law can submit an article on any legal/policy topic. It is our final and unconditional discretion to accept/reject any article. Interested people can email the article with their name, affiliation and contact details (phone number and E-Mail ID). We also accept articles by professionals and scholars in other fields, provided the article does have coherence with the basic aspects of the fields addressed.

  • We accept blogs in languages other than English (we are compatible with Hindi as of now).
