  1. Good evening. The website says, article submissions are accepted from PhD students and early career researchers. I have published a few papers and am pursuing my Masters in Law. Would I be able to submit?

    1. Hi Anisha. We do not set strict requirements on the background of the authors and will evaluate submissions only on the basis of their quality. We thus welcome your submission if you are interested.
