Call for Papers: Jindal Law and Humanities Review (JLHR)

Jindal Law and Humanities Review (JLHR) is a student-run, inter-media, peer-reviewed, open-access journal, brought out by Jindal Global Law School, O.P. Jindal Global University.

The journal, by challenging the distinction between law and non-law and positing the relationship between law and society as foundational to jurisprudence, constitutionalism, and the everyday realities of law, aims to address a lacuna.

We wish to further the enterprise inaugurated by interdisciplinary journals in India and around the world by delving into the ways of engaging with sociology, anthropology, history, legal literature and the like, while provoking a larger experience of producing varied forms of work on law and humanities through creative forms of expression.

We accept different forms of academic work including written and non-written work. This may include research articles, legal ethnographies, literature reviews, book reviews, essays, visual essays, commentaries, translated works, prose and poems, paintings, cartoons, photographs, video essays, among others.

Our past work and detailed submission guidelines may also be accessed on our website.


Each submission must be accompanied by a brief but adequate abstract.

• Research Articles: 5000-7000 words

• Legal Ethnography: 4000 words

• Commentaries: 2500- 3000 words.

• Book/Literature Review: 2000-3000 words.
