The Invisible Lawyer is an online platform initiated by Lawyers Collective looking for experts, lawyers, litigants, survivors, law students and academicians to share their story, their experience, and provide a legal analysis while drawing attention to issues of public importance.
Lawyers Collective has focused its work on accessing human rights through law. Their initiatives include work on right to medicine, women’s rights issues, drug policy, HIV and law and law and sexuality.
The Invisible Lawyer focuses on bringing together different perspectives on various progressive rights and the debates surrounding them.
The magazine addresses issues that remain invisible until acknowledged by the law and seeks to engage in these debates through a variety of creative outlets ranging from articles and essays to ‘Law-mericks’.
We are looking for creative pieces providing qualitative or quantitative legal analysis through cutting edge pieces on contemporary issues and, therefore, evaluate the use of law as an instrument of social change.
The submission can be an article, essay, interview, limerick, poem, short story, photo essay, video blog entry, spoken poetry videos or any other creative writing, relating to the issues addressed in the magazine.
The submission must be a topical opinion with a high quality legal analysis and not just the socio-economical perspective.
