About RGNUL Student Research Review (RSRR)

The RGNUL Student Research Review (RSRR) Journal is a bi-annual, student-run, blind peer-reviewed, flagship journal based at Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab. It was founded with the objective of facilitating arguments in black and white. 

About the Call for Papers

The Editorial Board invites submissions from academicians, practitioners, legal luminaries, and students on the theme Development and Future of Energy Transition: Analyzing the Legal Landscape.” 

The energy industry fuels economies all around the world and has a significant impact on other sectors including investment, environment, technological innovation, and international commitments, among others. Presently, the challenge plaguing the industry is regarding the reduction of our dependence on fossil fuels while ensuring that everyone has access to reliable and affordable energy alternatives. This, however, has been accompanied by a plethora of challenges. In view of the unexplored potential of the energy industry, the novel challenges and concerns, and the lack of a sound legal mechanism, RSRR seeks to delve into the theme to review and analyse the present policy framework in light of everyday developments.

The primary objective behind this theme is to provide a platform for legal analysis, insightful commentary, and in-depth analysis that can bridge the gap between relevant legal developments in the energy sectors, and ultimately enhance the discourse surrounding such stigmatized topics.

They welcome submissions from legal practitioners, academicians, students, and members of the legal fraternity.
