About the VIT Law Review
VIT School of Law, VIT, Chennai is inviting submissions for Volume 1, Issue 2 of VIT Law Review. The Journal aims to be a scholarly publication for insightful research articles, notes, and comments authored by the legal fraternity from across the world.
The VIT Law Review aspires to carve out a niche in legal journalism and to serve as a platform to showcase research of practitioners, academicians, and the broader intellectual community. The law review publishes two issues every year.
The inaugural volume of the VIT Law Review, which was centered around the theme of “Law, Science, and Technology” was published in 2019, successfully, and to critical acclaim.
This coming Volume aims to match and exceed the high standards of submissions received last year, and the timely theme of COVID-19 disruptions to the law will enable it to carve out a niche area among readers.
