Call for Papers: RGNUL Financial and Mercantile Law Review, Volume 5 Issue 2: Submit by June 15

RGNUL Financial and Mercantile Law Review was set up as an academic initiative to promote research and debate in areas of financial and economic law. The review looks to understand the legal paradigm prevalent in India and South East Asia and how it affects finance and other cross-border mercantile activities.

The journal aims at giving the opportunity to legal academia, research scholars, legal practitioners and students to publish work that is at the cutting edge of doctrinal, theoretical and empirical research.

Theme:

The upcoming issue of RGNUL Financial and Mercantile Law Review, i.e., Volume V Issue II, is going to be a special edition on ‘Ease of Doing Business.’

Through this edition, an attempt is made to create discourse on the emerging trends within the broader theme. Papers are invited dealing with one of the laws exclusively or mutually.

Sub-themes:



  • Recent amendments in the Companies Act, 2013, and Allied Laws w.r.t. Ease of Doing Business;
