Gujarat National Law University in Gandhinagar is one of India’s leading national law schools and has been transforming legal education since its inception in 2004.
The GNLU Law Review (‘TGLR’) is one of the flagship journals of Gujarat National Law University and was launched in 2008 in an urgent need to expand the platform for academics, professionals and scholars to share and disseminate knowledge and scholarship for new and innovative ideas in legal and related disciplines.
TGLR, under the general guidance of faculty editors, is a student-edited, peer-reviewed, annually published legal journal designed to provide a platform for an interdisciplinary approach to the study of law. Earlier editions of the journal contained articles by renowned legal scholars from around the world.
The TGLR is open to academics, practitioners, doctoral students and scientists. All submissions must be accompanied by an abstract with a maximum of 250 words. Up to 5 keywords must also be specified.
To provide a more comprehensive platform, TGLR is not limited to any particular topic. However, the statements on current legal issues would be preferred.
The contributions submitted for publication in TGLR must neither have previously been published nor currently be considered for publication elsewhere. The contributions will be judged on the basis of originality, innovative strength, clarity and technical correctness. The authors are solely responsible for the correctness of the statements in the article.
Co-authorship is permitted up to a maximum of 2 authors. The manuscript must not contain the name of the author or his institutional affiliation or any other information.
