Announcing the Socio-Legal Review Forum

[Announcement from the
Editorial Board of the Socio-Legal Review]
The Editorial Board of the Socio-Legal Review is
proud to announce the launch of its online companion/blog, the Socio-Legal
Review Forum
. Since its inception in 2005, SLR has strived to
further the discourse on the intersection of law and society. Over the past
decade, it has provided both students and scholars a platform to engage with
socio-legal matters relevant in the South Asian context. Since it became a
biannual publication in 2012, it has produced a themed issue every year,
providing different perspectives on current issues such as legal education,
human rights, and the environment.
However, the constraints of a journal format have
frequently rendered us unable to respond to current events with the immediacy
they require. Additionally, the legal blogosphere in India has a noticeable
vacuum when it comes to discussion on socio-legal issues, while more popular
outlets for think-pieces often lack a much-need legal perspective. To counter
this, we seek to provide a platform for informed debate on contemporary
developments across the globe. As a more informal venue, we also hope to reach
out to a wider audience than a journal is able to.
We welcome submissions in the form of comments on recent
legal developments or book reviews engaging with recent literature, as well as
responses to pieces previously published in the Review or
the Forum. To contribute a piece for the Forum, please
write to us at [email protected]. To submit a piece for our
print journal, please email us at [email protected].
For more information and for subscribing to the mailing
list, please refer to the Submission Guidelines.
