About the Journal
Symbiosis Law School, Nagpur Multidisciplinary Law Review (SNLR) is a double-blind peer-reviewed biannual journal of legal scholarship. SNLR was launched in the year 2021 and it aspires to be a forum that houses an objective analytical survey and scrutiny of the various contemporary legal issues with an interdisciplinary approach, making a contribution to the development of legal academia.
SNLR wishes to promote and reflect the ideals and pillars of thought that accompanies Symbiosis International (Deemed University) Pune. It is yet another attempt to pay tribute to our motto “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”—the world is one family as it aspires to bind the legal minds in our common pursuit to objectively perceive the world in the perfect balance of scale.
SNLR brings together a diverse range of legal scholars, practitioners, and experts from a variety of fields and disciplines, including but not limited to law, politics, economics, sociology, and history. At the core, we believe that the law cannot be studied in isolation, but must be understood within its broader social, political, and economic contexts. The journal provides a platform for cutting-edge research and analysis that explores the intersections of law and other disciplines.
The articles cover a wide range of topics, including human rights, environmental law, intellectual property, international law, and more. Previous contributors have brought a range of perspectives to these issues, drawing on a variety of methodologies and approaches to provide rigorous and insightful analysis.
They are committed to publishing work that is both academically rigorous and accessible to a wider audience. The articles are written in clear and concise language, making them suitable for both legal professionals and non-specialists.
The Journal bears ISSN: 2583-1984 (Online).
