About Us

The National Law School Business Law Review is a student-edited, peer-reviewed, open access law journal published annually by the National Law School of India University, Bangalore. The journal is a leading national academic publication on business and corporate laws in India, currently in its 5th year of publication, with four volumes having been published so far. Our inaugural issue was launched on August 30, 2015 by the Chief Justice of India and since has been circulated among legal circles in the Supreme Court and various High Courts.

The NLSBLR is a student initiative to recognise and foster academic research and scholarship in corporate and commercial law. The law review intends to examine the interface between the myriad regulatory frameworks that impact doing business in India, particularly in light of comparative international perspectives. Since its formation in late 2013, the mandate of the law review has evolved to encompass company law, securities and capital markets regulation, banking and finance, taxation, foreign investment, competition law, commercial dispute resolution, contract and commercial law, and employment law inter alia.

In the furtherance of this objective, NLSBLR has featured scholarship by a wide range of leading academics, practitioners, and luminaries, such as Justice V Ramasubramnian (Supreme Court of India), Phillip R Wood (QC, Allen and Overy LLP), Prof. James J. Nedumpara (Jindal Global Law School), and Jonathan Lim (Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP).
