International Commercial Law Review (ICLR) will be a bi-annual, online, peer reviewed journal. The aim of the journal will be to educate the society in general about the intricacies and latest developments in commercial law and to provide an intellectual platform for students, practitioners and academicians to publish and showcase their original legal thought on commercial law.
ICLR gives all the prospective contributors complete autonomy to write on any area of commercial law. There are no specific themes or sub-themes that are required to be followed by the contributors. However the journal does appreciate original submissions that have a flavour of internationalism to it.
Reason being simple, the world is getting smaller and laws of multiple jurisdictions will end up overlapping sooner or later in the light of international business and global trade.
The journal intends to be in sync with this global trend and will certainly promote literature that deals with the same. As mentioned previously, there are no specific themes or sub-themes, however for the sake of guidance and information for the prospective contributors, some of the topics that are covered under the scope and ambit of international commercial law are as under:-
- Law Relating to International Commercial Contracts
- International Commercial Arbitration Regime
