About the NMIMS Law Review Blog

The NMIMS Law Review Blog serves as a regular accompaniment to the annual NMIMS Student Law Review and the NMIMS Law Review. It is dedicated to facilitating discourse and creating a body of scholarship on contemporary legal issues. The blog provides an industry interface and explores key insights essential on the professional as well as the academic front.

The NMIMS Law Review Blog fosters legal inquiry and argument that is fast-paced and timely — a complement to the long-form, in-depth analysis that has filled our pages for six salient and fortunate years. We hope the ideas presented through this new platform will generate debate, uncover new questions, challenge our readers, and inspire continued exploration.

Submission Categories

The NMIMS Law Review Blog invites contributions in the following categories –

  • Responses to articles in the NMIMS Journal or previous blogs published on the NMIMS Law Review Blog
  • Articles on contemporary legal developments
  • Case comments on recent landmark developments
  • Book reviews engaging with recent literary works, etc.

Please note that this is not exhaustive and we would be happy to publish other pieces as long as they fall within our mandate specified above.
