Call for Blogs | NLUJ Centre for Litigation Studies

The Centre for Litigation Studies (CLiS) blog invites submissions, including articles, case comments, research pieces,opinions and short notes on any contemporary subject matter related to all areas of law.

ABOUT THE BLOG

The CLiS Blog is a blog established under the aegis of Centre for Litigation Studies, a student-run body at the National Law University, Jodhpur. The body is independently formed by some litigation enthusiasts of NLU, Jodhpur to promote and encourage litigation as a career option among the students. The Centre is aimed at organising lectures and other activities with a special focus on the practical understanding of procedural laws. One of the major projects we undertake is “The Intra-University Public Interest Litigation Filing Competition”, which is organised annually in a bid to make the students familiar with the filing of a PIL.

The content of the article should be both original and unpublished as it would be subjected to a Plagiarism Check.
