About the HPNLU Law Journal

The Law Journal is envisioned to be essential for promoting multi-disciplinary studies (with the law being the focal point) which sit at the core of the National Education Policy, 2020.

HLJ promotes research by bringing together legal thoughts from academia, professionals, social science scholars, and students to add to the existing debates. The Journal maintains its quality by using the technique of double-blind peer review and rigorous editing of each article.
