The Journal of Corporate Affairs and Corporate Crimes (JCACC) is the flagship corporate law journal of NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad. It is one of the few student run journals in India that is dedicated to corporate law and the first one to cater to the area of corporate crimes.
Nature of Contributions:
- Articles: An article must conduct a complete analysis of the area of law, which the author seeks to highlight. It must contain a comprehensive study of the existing law, indicating the lacunae therein, and must contain an attempt to suggest possible changes which can address the said lacunae. An article should be between 4,000 – 5,000 words.
- Essays: An essay is more adventurous as it challenges challenging existing paradigms/norms and provides a fresh outlook to common problems. It is strongly recommended that essays be considerably more concise than articles, in terms of scope and conceptualization. An essay is thus advised to be between 3,000 – 5,000 words.
- Notes: A note is a relatively concise form of an argument advanced by the author. The focus of a note should be on a relatively new debate or controversy regarding the interpretation or implementation in the law. Notes shall primarily highlight contemporary issues, which need to be addressed, and the authors are expected to offer a solution. The maximum word limit for a manuscript in the form of note is 2,500 words.
- Comments: A comment is where the author may decide to critique any recent/landmark judicial pronouncement or any recent legislation or bill before the Parliament or State Legislature. The word limit for a comment is 2,500 words.
- Format: Submissions should be in Times New Roman font, with 1.5 line spacing. Main text should be in font size 12 and footnotes in font size 10. All submissions must be compatible with Microsoft Word 2003 and 2007.
- Citation Format: The citation format to be used is the Bluebook (19th Edition). Speaking footnotes are discouraged.
- Abstract: Every submission should be accompanied by an Abstract of not more than 350 words describing the relevant conclusions drawn in the manuscript. Please note that there is no requirement of prior submission of abstract as the selection of the paper for publication shall be on basis of the full manuscript.
