Truth and Youth, a student-run organization with members from various NLUs call for articles and essays for Volume 1 Issue 3 of the Truth and Youth Law Journal. It is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal with the Student and Expert Editorial Boards to perform two rounds of blind review for the submissions.
About the Journal
Truth and Youth Law Journal (TAY.L.J.) is an Open Access, online quarterly Peer-Reviewed, multi-disciplinary national journal, established in January 2021, published by Truth and Youth. This is a national initiative undertaken by the students from the National Law Universities. The main objective of TAY.L.J. is to provide a channel for expressing the views of persons in the field of law.
We welcome professional researchers, lawyers, scholars and students from various fields in law. In addition, the knowledge of the law is an issue of shifting interest to a general skill level. The singularity of the journal is that it operates without any legal theme, so as to provide a reasonable opportunity to those who are interested in the field to express their views accordingly.
The purpose of TAY.L.J. is to provide a stage and platform to the students for showing their research and learning skills. We emphasize more on skill development through legal research, academic writings and various other activities that can make a substantive difference in career ahead. We intend to be a leader in facilitating a new type of discussion in various areas of law and similar disciplines. TAY.L.J. publishes the manuscripts revolving around Law and other similar disciplines.
