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. The Editorial Board of the Socio-Legal Review is proud to announce the launch of its online companion/blog, the Socio-Legal Review Forum. Since its inception in 2005, SLR has strived to further the discourse on the intersection of law and society. Over the past decade, it has provided both students and scholars a platform to engage with socio-legal matters relevant in the South Asian context. Since it became a biannual publication in 2012, it has produced a themed issue every year, providing different perspectives on current issues such as legal education, human rights, and the environment.
However, the constraints of a journal format have frequently rendered us unable to respond to current events with the immediacy they require. Additionally, the legal blogosphere in India has a noticeable vacuum when it comes to discussion on socio-legal issues, while more popular outlets for think-pieces often lack a much-need legal perspective. To counter this, we seek to provide a platform for informed debate on contemporary developments across the globe. As a more informal venue, we also hope to reach out to a wider audience than a journal is able to.
We welcome student submissions in the form of comments on recent legal developments or book reviews engaging with recent literature, as well as responses to pieces previously published in the Review or the Forum. To contribute a piece for the Forum, please write to us at sociolegalreviewforum@gmail
