A question often arises as to what is the difference between criminal law and criminology or between criminal justice and criminology. “DROIT PENALE: The Indian Law Journal on Crime and Criminology (ILJCC)”, aims to resolve this dubiousness by providing a wide range of well-researched articles, case notes, commentaries etc. covering the major aspects and issues under the ambit of crime and criminology. The term ‘Droit Penale’, literally means criminal law. It has a French origin and deals with the various facets of crime and criminology. As a huge field of academic study, Criminology tends to cover criminal law and jurisprudence apart from dealing with crimes and criminal and socially deviant behavior of criminals existing in the society. It also deals with the decriminalization processes. While Criminal law mainly focuses on the punishments coupled or labeled with such a criminal behavior.

The ILJCC, a student-friendly law journal, has emerged bearing the idea to encapsulate an exhaustive approach towards all these fields. It aims at providing a detailed analysis and assimilation of various issues on a single rostrum contrary to the concept of dealing with fields of criminal law and criminology separately. Further, the journal will also feature the works, opinions, and viewpoints of the greatest jurists of all times blended with the modern critical approaches towards their work. The IJLCC is committed to providing uncommon, unique and fresh probe into the core legal issues.

Contributions towards the journal in the form of articles, commentaries etc. from law graduates, undergraduates, teachers and other eminent persons are welcome and appreciated.
