WORD LIMIT FOR SUBMISSIONS:

  • ESSAYS/SHORT ARTICLES:An essay challenges existing paradigms/norms and provides a fresh outlook to common problems. It is strongly recommended that essays be considerably more concise than articles, in terms of scope and conceptualization. An essay must thus ideally be between 2,000-5,000 words.
  • LONG ARTICLES/RESEARCH PAPERS:An article must comprehensively analyze the issue that the author seeks to highlight. It must contain a rigorous study of the status quo or a contemporary issue in any area of Law. An article or Research Paper should be between 4,000-8,000 words.
  1. The word limit is exclusive of footnotes. However, looking at the quality and depth of research, relaxation may be given and the word limit may vary.
    2. The Subject of the E-mail should be titled “Manuscript Submission”.
  2. Depending upon the Submission, the Subject can be Long Article/Essay/Research Paper.
