It is an interesting fact that there are only very few research law journals which are published from India on a regular basis without break or interruption. Apart from the Journal of Indian Law Institute, the Academy Law Review can claim the status of being a research law journal published continuously without break. It is a matter of pride that the Academy Law Review is being published regularly with high quality original research articles since 1977 for the past 34 years continuously without any break or interruption.
