About the Journal
Jindal Law and Humanities Review (JLHR) is a student-run, peer-reviewed publication, brought out by Jindal Global Law School, O.P. Jindal Global University. The journal, by challenging the distinction between law and non-law and positing the relationship between law and society as foundational to jurisprudence, constitutionalism and everyday realities of law, aims to address the lacuna between law and the methods and tools of social science and humanities.
We wish to further the enterprise inaugurated by interdisciplinary journals in India and around the world by delving into the ways of engaging with sociology, anthropology, legal literature and the like, while provoking a larger experience of producing varied forms of work on law and humanities.
