  • Call for Submissions: Socio-Legal Review Forum, NLSIU, Bangalore
    Socio-Legal Review (SLR) is a student-edited, peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal published by the Law and Society Committee of the National Law School of India University, Bangalore. SLR aims to be a forum that involves, promotes and engages students and scholars to express their ideas and opinions on themes and methodologies relating to the interface of law and society.

From 2012, SLR has become a biannual publication with one themed and one non-themed issue published every year.
