Call For Papers for Volume 8 Issue 2 of the Journal | The Editorial Board of RGNUL Student Research Review (RSRR)


The Editorial Board of RGNUL Student Research Review (RSRR) is pleased to announce its Call For Papers for Volume 8 Issue 2 of the Journal.

In view of the unexplored potential of the Indian sports & gaming industry, the novel challenges and concerns, and the lack of a sound legal mechanism, RSRR seeks to delve into the theme, “Unboxing the Legal Potential of the Sports & Gaming Industry: Redesigning India’s Way of Playing” to review and analyze the present policy framework in light of the 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 sports and gaming sectors, and ultimately enhance the discourse surrounding such stigmatized topics.

RSRR invites submissions from students, academicians, lawyers, and other professionals from the legal fraternity in the form of Articles, Short Notes, Case Comments, and Legislative Comments.
