Leagle Samiksha invites you to submit writings for blog posts and questions for forum discussion.
The Blog Posts are expected to be critiques of existing regime of human rights law as well as its application on the ground level. Therefore, concise and succint submissions are encouraged.
The Forum more specifically deals with questions and explanations regarding statutory provisions from the bare acts. With this exercise, we endeavour to encourage students to read the bare acts and initiate dialogue within the legal fraternity about the nuances of the law.
We accept both submissions on a rolling basis.
