Elenchus Law Review is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal published biannually by the Centre for Economy Development, and Law (CED & L), Government Law College, Thrissur, Kerala. Elenchus Law Review (ISSN: 2395-034X; E-ISSN: 2456-9798) is now inviting papers to be published in its third volume (Volume 3, Issue 1 & Volume 3, Issue 2).
The Journal aims to be a medium that involves, promotes and engages students, academicians and legal fraternities to express and share their ideas and opinions on themes and methodologies relating to the interface of law and society.
The upcoming issues are to focus on review of major legal and political events of the year 2017, though other interdisciplinary academic research papers also are welcome. We encourage research, drawing on a variety of theoretical bases, research methodologies, and disciplines and attempt to ensure an eclectic method to stimulate critical thinking and to illuminate ideas.
The journal welcomes submissions from law students, judges, lawyers as well as academicians. With a view to encouraging interdisciplinary erudition, it also welcomes submissions from experts from other disciplines.
