  1. Shubhrajeet,

    Once you submit the paper, we will let you know through mail and as the deadline is 15th December, it will take at least 15-20 days.

    Hope you got your answer!

  2. It would be helpful if you provide me some prerequisites as to ‘Case Study’ i.e word limit and other limitations. I am very keen to submit a case study note where 2 states belong to South Asia and its related to maritime issues. Is it acceptable to this law journal?

  3. Mahi,

    You are not supposed to send abstract earlier to 15th December. However, you need to include an abstract with the main paper only.

    Hope your query is solved!
