  • International trade law and policy
  • International investment law and policy
  • Trans-border dispute resolution
  • International financial law
  • Global competition law
  • Note: These themes are not exhaustive and the author may choose any interdisciplinary approach with regard to trade and allied laws.


  • Long Articles (6000-8000 words): In this category of submissions, the journal expects a detailed analysis of the issue(s) undertaken by the author, to the extent of a detailed analysis of the surrounding legal scenario at domestic and international levels and/or cross-jurisdictional analysis, and concrete conclusions and suggestions (through a reform-oriented research methodology), indicating a specific way forward.
  • Short Articles (4000-6000 words): In this category of submissions, the journal expects analysis of contemporary legal issues from single or multiple legal perspectives, i.e. a detailed examination of legal developments and/or happenings (which may involve legislative enactments, jurisprudential developments by judicial developments) using single or multiple legal perspectives as (a) basis. In this category, if at all an author attempts to analyse debatable issues, i.e. issues that could be addressed through two perspectives of being justified or not justified, authors are encouraged to employ multilateral perspectives for the purposes of analysis, and then provide a conclusion in furtherance of such analysis.
  • Book Reviews (1500-2500 words): In this category of submissions, a critical review may be undertaken of a book related to trade law and allied fields, including the issues explored and related arguments of the author.
  • Case Comments (1500-2500 words): In this category of submissions, the journal expects detailed analysis of judgements, and the submission revolving around a critical analysis/comment of the case being commented on. The analysis should be much more than a brief of the case details and look at the judgement from surrounding and stakeholding laws. Much like the previous category, in the process of case comments, authors are expected to critically comment by looking into the judicial mindset behind the judgement and then commenting on its benefits or shortcomings.
  • Notes (1500-2000 words): In this category of submissions, the journal expects substantive analysis of specific areas of trade law, not demanding a background study, but pointed critical comments on unaddressed or contemporary developments in the field. These can include policy reviews and article commentaries.
  • The name of the author(s), institutional affiliation/qualification, the title of the manuscript, the category of the manuscript and their contact information shall be included in the covering e-mail. Please refrain from including any information that could identify the author(s) in the manuscript;
  • Each work should be accompanied by an abstract of not more than 350 words;  
  • The work submitted shall be original and unpublished;
  • A maximum co-authorship of two authors is allowed;
  • The copyright of the entry to the Journal will rest with the Editorial Board once the entry has been selected and the authors (s) of the same have been notified;
  • The final decision as to the acceptance of manuscripts rests with the Editorial Board.
  • Full papers have to be emailed to with the subject “Submission for Volume II”.
  • December 31, 2022
