3 years 4 months ago #1 by Ushashi Datta
About the Law Review

The RGNUL Student Research Review [formerly known as RGNUL Student Law Review] (hereinafter “Law Review”)is a bi-annual, student run, peer reviewed journal based at Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab.

It is the flagship journal managed by the students of the University. It has been founded with the objective of facilitating arguments in black and white. Legal Research skills form the core of the learning process in any dimension of law. The primary function of the Law Review is to promote student research, deliberation and writing in the field of law.

The Law Review aims to publish comprehensive treatments of subjects (“articles”), preferably written by law students as well as shorter pieces, commonly called “notes” and “comments”.

Normative law articles form a major component of the Law Review. Legislative Bill Drafting is one of the novel and the primary areas which it aims to cover. Ambiguous provisions in the law are a cause of concern amongst the legal community.

In pursuance of the same, any flaws in domestic legislations/treaties can be addressed in the article. The Law Review aims to seek the opinion of student researchers and provides the option to DRAFT and/or AMEND the existing law.
