About the Journal

Centre for Corporate Governance is a research hub under the rubrics of National Law University, Jodhpur, dedicated to research and development of governance standards for the corporate world. In order to promote holistic research on areas covered within the wide ambit of corporate law, the Centre came out with an annual publication in 2008, presently known as Journal on Corporate Law and Governance (formerly known as ‘Journal on Governance’).

The Journal on Corporate Law & Governance is evidence of invincible research, thought-provoking ideas and significant academic and intellectual standards. It offers a forum for critical research on the interplay of contemporary issues in corporate law, both from an academic and industry perspective. The Journal is peer-reviewed with ISSN serial publication No. 0976-0369 and indexed on prestigious legal databases SCC Online and Manupatra. It offers a forum for critical research on the interplay of contemporary issues in corporate law, both from an academic and industry perspective. Along with exploring the various problems and challenges that affect the corporate world, the Journal attempts to explore and offer workable solutions, which may be helpful in regulatory and policy decisions.

The journal also publishes the winning essay of the prestigious Pranita Mehta Memorial Essay Writing Competition conducted by the Corporate Law Society, NLUJ. The competition aims to create profound discussions and discourse around contemporary issues within the corporate law realm. The Corporate Law Society provides a platform to foster stimulating discussions on corporate law developments, which touch upon a variety of practices, ranging from banking and finance to capital markets, from competition law to projects and finance through its Insiders Insight lecture series, monthly legal bulletins, and the Essay Competition.

Our previous issues of the Journal boast of scholarly discourses from eminent legal practitioners, academicians, research scholars and students. The articles for publication are selected and worked upon through a meticulous and structured review and editing process. The Journal has received much appreciation from all contours of the industry and academia. We welcome contributions and suggestions for helping the Journal on Governance nurture in its endeavour.
