About Law and Other Things
Started in 2005, Law and Other Things (LAOT) is India’s first public law blog devoted to fostering discussion on India’s legal system, its Courts, and its Constitution. Through the publication of analytical and explainer pieces as well as through its recent Podcast Series, the blog aims to promote scholarship on constitutionalism, general public law and policy. LAOT was most recently cited by a Constitution Bench of the Indian Supreme Court. Since 2017, the blog has been managed by a Student Editorial Board from NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad, under the aegis of our Senior Editorial Board. LAOT also annually hosts ‘The Courts and the Constitution Conference’ to initiate vigorous panel discussions and debate on the major constitutional rulings of the year gone by.
Call for Blog Articles
We are calling for submission of analytical pieces in the field of public law. Under our unique two-stage review system, every submission receives constructive feedback from our Student Editorial Board, which works with the authors to develop the piece. Thereafter, selected articles are reviewed by our distinguished Senior Editorial Board, before publication on the website. We welcome well-researched and novel posts from law students, academicians, and practitioners alike.
- The topic or theme must be related to an area of public law. For reference, please look at the posts on our website.
- Language should be formal, but not strictly academic.
- The piece should not exceed 1200 words. Longer pieces may be split into multiple parts for better readability, if the topic calls for it, however the same is discouraged.
- All references should be provided as hyperlinks instead of citations unless an online source is unavailable. We’re unable to review pieces that have not hyperlinked sources.
- Please send your submission to laotnalsar[at]gmail[dot]com.
Please do refer to our detailed guidelines, which also outline the review process, before sending in your pieces.
Feel free to write to us at [email protected] with any queries, doubts, and clarifications.
