About Us

The desire to launch a legal publication was born out of our respective frustrations at the state of contemporary legal publishing in India, the number of dodgy academic journals, and indeed cultural and political commentary in the country. Where could an aspiring writer-critic-editor hope to get published? The established legal publications at home seemed to be closed shops, conservative either in their politics or their tastes. We lamented the decline of cultural criticism and essay-length journalism, forms which seemed increasingly in danger of confinement to the ivory tower. We were exasperated that insightful legal writing, so central to our society, were so often made inaccessible to audiences without the theoretical training demanded by gatekeepers determined to protect their own territory.

We borrowed a name from La Revue Blanche, a publication edited by the art critic Félix Fénéon which took up many of the principles we sought to appropriate for ourselves to publish ambitious, innovative writing; to bring law and society together; to publish a new generation of writers; to engage with the world around us.The Law Review Anthology is a student led digital project founded by the students of various law schools to provide a space for a discourse on law and society unconstrained by form, subject or genre, and publish articles, essays, and interviews with legal practitioners and students.

Anyone is free to contribute ideas for articles to the project. The submission guidelines can be accessed here.
