About the Review

RGNUL Financial and Mercantile Law Review was set up as an academic initiative to promote research and debate in areas of financial and economic impute emanating out of legal issues. The review looks to understand the legal paradigm prevalent in India and South East Asia and how it affects finance and other cross border mercantile activities. Our review generally entertains submissions that have a basis in Indian, Southeast Asian, and International Law and pertaining to the Trade Law, Financial Law, Comparative Law, Banking Laws, Companies Law, Intellectual Property Law, Capital Markets Law, and Contract Law.
However, the review’s scope is quite vast, and therefore submissions not based on the preceding areas of law but having some correlation to financial or mercantile issues will also be entertained. The review is a student-run, peer review online law review which comes out with editions bi-annually and has a sidebar that invites and publishes submissions on an ongoing basis.

Peer review
On submission of an article, note, essay, or review the submission is placed before our team of editors who evaluate the submission for its relevance, structure, content, originality, language, cited sources, and coherence. All submissions are reviewed within a 4 week cycle and authors are intimated accordingly.
