Call for Submissions | IJIEL Blog [Rolling submissions]

The Indian Journal of International Economic Law (“IJIEL”), the flagship international economic law journal of the National Law School of India University, is pleased to call for blogs on a rolling basis.

About us

We are a student-edited, peer-reviewed law journal published annually by the National Law School of India University, Bangalore under the patronage of the Ministry of Commerce Chair on WTO Law. The IJIEL Blog was envisaged as a supplement to the mandate and objectives of its namesake Journal and serves as a more convenient forum for the facilitation of dialogue on international economic law. The Journal has witnessed the publication of pieces by luminaries of the field such as Raj Bhala, Yogesh Pai, Fiona Smith and Faizel Ismail, and the Blog strives to reach the same heights. We welcome pieces addressing all aspects of the vast domain of international economic law, including trade and development law, international arbitration law, intellectual property law, international taxation law and everything else in between. IJIEL also has the mandate of covering aspects of international economic law affecting the developing world, and pieces to that effect are also welcome.

Who can Contribute?

The IJIEL Blog solicits submissions from academics, practitioners, and others; we also accept student articles and notes.

    3. Responses to pieces published in previous volumes of the IJIEL Journal or Blog;

    4. Book Reviews engaging with recently published literature on international economic law.
