Call for Articles: NUSRL’s National Symposium on National Judicial Appointment Commission Act vs Collegium System [7 Nov, Ranchi]: Submit by Nov 5


Against this backdrop, the theme of the Symposium would be “Whether, under our constitutional scheme, the only means to achieve an independent judiciary is by granting primacy to the CJI and his colleagues.”

Answering this question would have entailed an analysis on the methods of maintaining an independent judiciary, and a consideration of:

Does the removal of the prerogative solely vested in the collegium in appointing judges to India’s higher judiciary violate the Constitution’s basic structure?

Call for Articles

Articles are invited from the academicians, practitioners, researchers, scholars, activists, and Ph.D students on the issues related to relevant areas of study.

Abstracts would be reviewed by the organizing committee review group. It is also proposed that the selected papers by the CLS will be published in a special volume on the seminar in the form of an edited book with ISBN.

We consider four different types of articles for publication on the portal.

The different article types are academic, feature, opinion, and interview and they are discussed in more detail below.

The author of the article agrees that the work he/she is submitting meets the appropriate criteria and does not infringe upon any copyright or intellectual property laws.

All submitted articles are first screened by the editor-in-chief to determine:

1. The suitability and appropriateness of the article topic

2. The academic rigor and writing quality of the article

3. The type of article submitted

4. If the article meets the criteria defined for that type of article

Note: If the article is not suitable or is deemed low quality, then the article will be rejected.

However, if the article meets the above criteria, it will be accepted and go through the review process.

After the review process, the article will be subject to one of the following outcomes:

1. Publishable. Accept with no revisions, minor revisions, or some major revisions.
