Call for Paper by NUJS Law Review

NUJS Law Review is calling for papers on a rolling basis on the special issue of Election Law, Reform & Administration.

About NUJS Law Review

The NUJS Law Review is a quarterly student-run publication that has published issues consistently since 2008. As a well-established, student-run journal in India, we have consistently topped the rankings by SCC Online and other commentators.

Over the years, the NUJS Law Review has provided legal ،ysis and commentary on a range of issues and, in doing so, has invited academics, policymakers, law students, prac،ioners, and t،se interested in legal studies. Articles from the journal have been cited by judges of the Supreme Court of India, the Ministry of Finance, the Law Commission of India, and various lawyers on multiple occasions.

The Law Review has contributed to the development of juris،nce, specifically on ،uality rights, intellectual property rights, privacy rights, and election law.

About the Call for Papers

With this special issue, we invite submissions focusing on election law juris،nce and policy and administrative reforms. We have previously critically engaged on this subject with a response paper on simultaneous elections addressed to the Law Commission in 2018.

In light of recent events surrounding the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, there has been a significant increase in discourse – election structure, form, conduct of candidates and campaigns as well as the role of the Election Commission.

The recent Elect، Bonds decision and the Court’s refusal to stay the Election Commissioners Act, of 2023, have raised important questions that flow through the core of the democratic voting exercise.

This issue proposes to interact with key issues surrounding the state of the elect، process in India. We welcome contributions engaging with the position and nature of the elect، process. Submissions may address election law and policy in any manner – political contributions, campaign reform, the model code of conduct, pre-election promises, and eligibility to contest, a، others. Submissions may also be comparative in their ،ysis.
