The Centre for Business and Commercial Laws (CBCL) is dedicated to promoting research in the field of business and commercial laws. The CBCL Blog creates a platform for both, students and professionals, to contribute their unique opinions and viewpoints so as to stimulate an exchange of ideas in all aspects of business and commercial laws.
- The CBCL blog accepts submissions on a rolling basis on corporate law, securities law, insolvency law, banking law, arbitration law, competition law and taxation law.
- Submissions can be in the form of articles, opinions, case comments and short notes on the aforementioned topics.
- Authors should use endnotes and NOT footnotes.
- The citation format used for the endnotes must be uniform, preferably the latest edition of the Bluebook.
- Submissions should be the original work of the contributor.
- Authors are advised to keep their articles concise and precise to enhance the effectiveness of their posts, ideally not more than 1500 words (excluding endnotes).
- Authors are advised to make succinct, initial paragraphs to summarise the substance of their posts.
- The relevant sources should be ideally mentioned in the texts. Endnotes should be avoided and must only be used where necessary.
- Wherever case law, statutory materials or other resources are being referred to, appropriate links must be provided to those in the endnotes or the text itself.
- The articles should be analytical rather than descriptive.
- Posts accepted for publication on The CBCL blog may be cross-posted. However, this is subject to the condition that such cross-posting should necessarily acknowledge the fact that the article was originally posted on The CBCL blog.
