The NLIU Law Review engages students throughout the publication process, such that a majority of the editing, managerial and organizational work is undertaken by the student body of the journal. Given the opportunities it provides to the student community, the journal has a direct bearing on the research-oriented goals that the institution envisages to meet. Apart from publishing two issues of the journal on an annual basis, the NLIU Law Review hosts a number of events throughout the year such as –
• The NLIU-India Foundation Constitutional Law Symposium

Our present collaborators include India Foundation, SCC Online, Eastern Book Company, Live Law, Bar & Bench and so on.
