Call for Papers- International Commercial Law Rewiew (Volume.1, Issue 1)

The International Commercial Law Review (ICLR) will be a bi-annual, online, peer reviewed journal. The journal aims to educate the society in general about the complexity and latest developments taking place in the field of  commercial law and to provide an intellectual platform for students, practitioners and academicians to publish and represent their original legal thoughts and views on commercial law.

The Themes –
ICLR gives all the prospective contributors complete freedom to write and express on any area subjected to commercial law. There are no fixed themes or sub-themes that are required to be followed by the contributors. However, the journal aspires for and would appreciate original submissions that have a touch of internationalism to it.

Reason being simple, the world is getting smaller and laws of multiple jurisdictions will end up overlapping sooner or later in the light of international business and global trade.

The journal aims to be in harmony with this global trend and certainly will  promote literature that deals with the same. As mentioned earlier, there are no fixed themes or sub-themes, however for the sake of providing proper guidance and information for the prospective contributors, some of the topics that are covered under the scope and boundary of international commercial law are as under:-

  • Law Relating to International Commercial Contracts
  • International Commercial Arbitration Regime
  • Banking Regulation
  • International Financial Law
