The Journal of National Law University, Delhi (“JNLUD”) is a faculty run, peer-reviewed journal published by the National Law University, Delhi. The Journal seeks to provide a platform for engaging in multi-disciplinary discussions on themes of law, society and justice. Towards this end, the Journal welcomes submissions from academicians, practitioners and research scholars (including PhD candidates) from law and allied fields. The Journal does not accept student submissions.
JNLUD welcomes original and previously unpublished articles, notes and comments, and book reviews for publication in its 2013-2014 volume. Articles are typically around 10,000 words including footnotes. Notes and Comments are shorter pieces (of around 5,000 words). These have a narrower scope of inquiry than articles and may include analysis of recent case law, legislation or policy. Book reviews are generally around 3000 words. We welcome reviews of books that have made a significant contribution to legal or academic scholarship. Successful submissions to this category will engage substantively with the ideas and themes explored in the book instead of merely providing a summary of its main arguments.
JNLUD follows the Blue Book (19th edition) citation style. Authors are encouraged to adhere as closely as possible to this citation style. However, at the stage of submission, non-compliance with the Blue Book will not affect the Editorial Board’s decision on publishability of the piece.
Please submit your manuscript as a MS-Word document. The submission should have an attached cover page with the following details:
1. Title of the submission
2. Name of the Author
3. Affiliation and a short bio of the author (200 words)
Apart from the cover page, the rest of the submission should not contain any reference to the identity of the author in order to enable anonymous screening and peer-review.
Submissions for the 2013-14 volume are accepted on a rolling basis upto January 31, 2014. Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. All submissions will be immediately acknowledged. The Editors will strive to inform you of their decision within 3 weeks of receiving the submission.
