Call for Papers by City Journal of Law & Research (CJLR) Volume 1 Issue 1 [No Fee]: Submit by January 21

City Law College’s ‘City Journal of Law and Research’ is inviting submissions by way of a Call for Papers for its Volume 1 Issue 1.

About the Journal

The City Journal on Law & Research (CJLR) Peer Review Journal aims to resolve this dubiousness by providing a wide range of well researched articles, case notes, commentaries etc. covering the major aspects and issues under the ambit of Law & Research. As a huge field of academic study, Criminology and Constitution tends to cover criminal law and jurisprudence apart from dealing with crimes and criminal and socially deviant behaviour of criminals existing in the society. It also deals with the decriminalisation processes. While Criminal law mainly focuses on the punishments coupled or labelled with such a criminal behaviour.

The CJLR, a student friendly law journal, has emerged bearing the idea to encapsulate an exhaustive approach towards all these fields. It aims at providing a detailed analysis and assimilation of various issues on a single rostrum contrary to the concept of dealing with fields of criminal law and criminology separately. Further the journal will also feature the works, opinions and viewpoints of the greatest jurists of all times blended with the modern critical approaches towards their work. The CJLR is committed to provide uncommon, unique and fresh probe into the core legal issues.

Contributions towards the journal in the form into the core legal issues. Contributions towards the journal in the form of articles, commentaries etc. from law graduates, undergraduates, teachers and other eminent persons are welcome and appreciated.
