About the Journal:
Indian Journal of Corporate Law and Policy is a double-blind peer-reviewed, triannual journal. It is published by the Society for Progress in Research, Education and Development in Law (SPRED LAW) which is registered under The Societies Act, 1860 (Reg. No. LUC/09322/2019-2020).
The Journal aims at providing in-depth coverage of the corporate legal issues and policy reviews in India. It focuses on supplementing the corporate structure of India with the best quality reviewed research papers, researched articles, policy reviews, and researched blogs by students, academicians, research scholars, and practitioners which will be published after a double-blind peer review policy by the specific departmental field experts.
The papers should address the contemporary and pertinent issues on the varied dimensions of corporate and commercial laws. Preference would be given to novel and innovative research topics.
The authors wishing to submit manuscripts on relevant and contemporary corporate issues should provide an overview of corporate and commercial laws and allied subject areas with the aim to either indicate the lacunae therein or, attempt to suggest possible changes, which can address the said lacunae or alternatively holistically cover the subject matter while offering a critical analysis of the chosen theme. For instance, incorporation of a company, commercializing one’s intellectual property, compliance with local, state, or national regulations affecting the use of real property, and so forth.
