The RGNUL Student Research Review (RSRR) Journal (formerly known as the RGNUL Student Law Review) is a bi-annual, student-run, blind peer-reviewed, flagship journal based at Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Patiala, Punjab. It has been founded to facilitate arguments in black and white.
The RSRR Journal aims to publish comprehensive treatments of subjects (“articles”), written by law students as well as shorter pieces, commonly called “notes” and “comments”. Normative law articles also form a major component of the RSRR Journal.
It aims to seek the opinion of student researchers and provides the option to draft and/or amend the existing law. This issue will be published in print under the name RSLJ (RGNUL Student Law Journal) for RNI purposes.
With the publication of Volume 7, Issue 2 of our Journal on the theme “Reassessing the Environmental Rule of Law in India: Bridging Gaps for Survival”, RSRR had the privilege of receiving the Foreword from Hon’ble Dr Justice D.Y. Chandrachud.
RSRR also runs its Blog Series intending to provide a platform for academicians to critically analyse contemporary and unexplored legal issues. The RSRR Blog Series has been named one of the top 35 Constitutional Law Blogs by Feedspot.
Further, as a part of our Excerpts from Experts Blog Series, we have had the pleasure of receiving contributions from luminaries such as Prof. (Dr.) Upendra Baxi, Dr. Sairam Bhat, Mr Ajar Rab, Mr Abhinav Sekhri, among others.
