About JILS

Journal of Indian Law and Society (formerly the Indian Juridical Review) is a student run peer reviewed journal based at the National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata. Published bi-annually, it is the flagship journal of the Student Juridical Association.

It was founded with the objective of creating an inter-disciplinary forum to analyze legal issues through the prism of other social sciences. Breaking the barriers of compartmentalized legal discussions, the Journal encourages cross-disciplinary approaches for a better understanding of law and legal systems within India. Thus, it aims to contribute significantly to the fields of both social sciences and law and especially the sociology of law.

The journal publishes original papers which are evaluated by independent referees on the basis of their quality of inter-disciplinary research and contribution to reshaping legal views from a law and society perspective.
