About NLSIU

NLSIU was the first National Law University established in India in 1986. The premier law school was set up with a mission to pioneer legal education reforms, and to anchor the transformation of the Indian legal system through research and policy interventions. Consequently, the NLSIU was one of the first institutions in the country to introduce the five-year integrated law degree at the undergraduate level with the commencement of the first batch in 1988.

About the Socio-Legal Review

The Socio-Legal Review (SLR) is a student-run, peer-reviewed journal published by the National Law School of India University, Bangalore (NLSIU). SLR began with the support of the Modern Law Review, London in 2005 and has, over the past few years, carried articles by luminaries in the legal and social field such as Rajeev Dhavan, Roger Cotterrell, W.T. Murphy and Asghar Ali Engineer.

The Socio-Legal Review Forum (SLR Forum) was conceptualized as a platform for informed debate on contemporary developments. The Forum acts as an online companion to our print journal. It accepts short pieces in the form of comments on recent legal developments or book reviews engaging with recent literature. Longer pieces in the form of essays or responses to pieces published in the journal are also accepted.
