About CLIS BLOG
The Centre for Litigation Studies (CLiS) is a student run body at the National Law University Jodhpur. CLiS was established to promote and encourage litigation as a career option among the students. We aim at organising lectures and other activities with a special focus on the practical understanding of procedural laws. The Centre organises the Intra-University Public Interest Litigation Filing Competition annually in a bid to make the students familiar with the filing of a PIL.
CLiS Blog has been created to further the said objective by publishing articles and interviews of the individuals associated with litigation in order to understand the nuances of the field.
Authors: We invite submissions from litigators, legal scholars, law students and other authors Ejusdem Generis.
Co-authorship is permitted subject to a maximum of two authors.
Content: Owing to the nature of our centre, we don’t put fetters on the subject matter. Articles on any aspect/subject of law are accepted. However, articles closely related to the procedural aspects of litigation are encouraged.
The content of the article should be both original and unpublished as it would be subjected to a Plagiarism Check.
The submission should be in Microsoft Word Format.
