Law students the world over face a peculiar paradox. On the one hand, law schools relentlessly goad them towards academic pursuits and, specifically, getting their writing published. On the other hand, only a disproportionately few journals actually accept student submissons. In response to this, many universities have opted to establish journals exclusively intended for students. Such initiatives serve several purposes. One, they serve as fora for student scholarship. They also enable such scholarship to reach a wider audience, and hence encourage and incentivise student involvement in research. Secondly, since most such journals are student-run in character, they also familiarise students with the editorial and other skills required for producing academic journals.
The NLUO Student Law Journal (NLUO-SLJ) is an initiative in this direction by the National Law University Odisha (NLUO). It is a double-blind, peer reviewed, and student-run academic journal bearing ISSN No. 2305-062X. The venture has been initiated to fulfil the mandate of promoting research, scholarship, and writing among law students; it accepts contributions on all areas of law, and even social sciences issues bearing a legal slant. Undergraduate and postgraduate students of any discipline, not necessarily law, are invited to contribute. In exceptional cases submissions from full-time doctoral students may be considered, but at the discretion of the editorial board.
