Formerly known as the NLUD Student Law Journal, it is an annual student-edited, peer-reviewed law journal, which seeks to provide a forum for engaging in discussions on varied issues of contemporary importance in domestic and international law and policy. The aim of the journal is to encourage scholarship and research in all areas of the law and its relationship with other disciplines in order to analyse crucial developments in the legal field.
The Editorial Board is pleased to invite scholarly submissions from students, academicians, practitioners and other researchers for the inaugural issue of the journal.
