    NLSIU has invited contributions for the upcoming edition of the National Law School Journal (NLSJ) which is a peer-reviewed journal edited by faculty members at the National Law School of India University (NLSIU) in Bangalore.

    Contributions in the form of long articles (8,000-12,000 words), shorter essays (5,000-8,000 words), comments on judicial decisions (3,000–5,000 words), analysis of legislative materials (3,000-5,000 words) and reviews of recently published books (2,000-3,000 words) besides other forms of scholarly writing are invited. Contributions are expected to be largely within the rubric of legal studies and allied interdisciplinary scholarship. The National Law School Journal seeks pieces authored by practitioners, academicians and researchers. This means that those enrolled in research degrees (e.g. M. Phil, PhD. and comparable programmes) are welcome to contribute.

    The deadline for accepting submissions is October 31, 2016. The same may be e-mailed to (preferably in MS Word format) along with a covering letter addressed to Dr. Sarasu Esther Thomas (Chief Editor, National Law School Journal, 2015-16).

    The covering letter should include the author’s contact information and a short abstract that outlines the main questions or themes addressed in the paper. All submissions will go through an initial round of review by the editorial board and the selected pieces will subsequently be sent for peer-review before finalisation for publication. We encourage potential contributors to adhere to the Harvard Bluebook (21st edn.) for citation style. All queries may be directed to
