As law students we have all gone through and still undergo the pain of seeing our research papers getting rejected by publishing journals.
But what if someone told you, that they would not actually reject your paper but would rather keep your paper on hold, then suggest you the required modifications and changes whichever and wherever required which, if incorporated properly, in your paper would make it perfect to publish. Yes, my law peeps, you heard it right.
The International Journal of Advanced Research in Law & Social Science (IJARLS) is here to encourage law students across the country to research, write and submit papers on the legal topics of their interest and essentially help in getting a platform to get their papers published.
