TCLF is a forum for the exchange of ideas and we are open to submissions from all areas of law as long as they have some contemporary relevance.

We invite submissions on a rolling basis throughout the calendar year from members of the bar, legal professionals, law students, or others who are interested in publishing with us.

Submissions should conform to the following guidelines:

-> Articles should contain content that is both original and unpublished.
-> Co-authorship is allowed up to 2 authors.
-> Authors should preferably use hyperlinks within the text itself for citing the resources instead of footnotes.
-> If hyperlinking the resources is not possible, authors may use Oxford Standard OSCOLA (4th edition) or any uniform citation style to cite authorities as endnotes.
-> Authors should restrict their submissions between 1500- 1800 words.
-> Submissions should be made in Microsoft Word format.
-> Language used should be British English.
-> Authors must adhere to the following formatting style; Font style: Times New Roman, Font size: 12 and Line spacing: 1.5.
-> The articles would be evaluated on the following broad parameters: novelty/originality of the idea, articulation, structure, relevancy and authors’ insight.
-> The review process usually takes a week’s time.

Content published on TCLF may be cross posted by the author on other platforms only after:

-> 48 hours of its publication on TCLF.
-> Taking due permission of the editorial board for the same.

If you are interested in submitting a piece, kindly mail us at with the subject line: ‘Submission_TCLF’.
