I am glad to inform you that Center for Phenomenological Studies, after successfully organizing two seminars, Life-world and Consciousness in Chennai in March 2016 and Phenomenology of Myths and Rituals in ICPR Lucknow in April 2016, will be organizing a two-day workshop on Perspectives in Consciousness—Edmund Husserl and Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry in association with Sri Aurobindo Center for Advanced Research (SACAR) on 21 and 22 June 2016. As we could not get a sponsor, this will be a self-financed programme. The brochure of the programme can be seen in our Center’s web site. It will give you all details. Please check our web site http://www.phenomenology.in/index.php/cps1

This being the case, please inform teachers of other departments and students of other disciplines encouraging them to attend our course. It may also be noted that we make available opportunities for paper presentation in the workshop and accordingly certificates will also be issued. It may also be noted that SACAR conducts many programmes on a regular basis based on Sri Aurobindo’s philosophy and teachings.

The Journal is currently soliciting submissions for Volume 2. The submission deadline for Volume 2 is April 30, 2016. We welcome submissions from academicians, practitioners, students, researchers and experts from within the legal community. We have a strong preference for articles that assert and defend a well-reasoned position.

I.J.L.R.G is a print Journal under the Chief patron of Hon. Justice K.N Saikia, Former Judge Supreme Court of India, Dr. Hon. Justice Malimath, Former Chief Justice Karnataka and Kerala High Court, Prof. (Dr.) M.P.Singh, Chancellor Central University, Haryana, Prof. (Dr.) Gurjeet Singh, Founder Vice-Chancellor N.L.U.J.A Assam, Prof. (Dr.) Faizan Mustaffa, V.C NALSAR Hyderabad, Prof. Shamnad Basheer and other luminaries from the legal fraternity.

It is aimed at institutionalizing and channelling the analytical and incisive articles of students towards value addition and developing inherent potentials of legal fraternity.

Call for Papers:
International Journal of Legal Research and Governance (IJLRG), ISSN 2394-7829 is a quarterly double blind peer reviewed journal. We look forward for submissions from members of the Bar, Bench and the academia. Submissions can be in the form of long articles, short articles, case comments, legislative notes and book reviews.

The last date for submission of papers is 5th April, 2015.
Nature of Contributions:
1. Articles: An article must conduct a complete analysis of the area of law, which the author seeks to highlight. It must contain a comprehensive study of the existing law, indicating the lacunae therein, and must contain an attempt to suggest possible changes which can address the said lacunae. An article should be between 4,000-5,000 words.
2. Essays: An essay is more adventurous as it challenges challenging existing paradigms/norms and provides a fresh outlook to common problems. It is strongly recommended that essays be considerably more concise than articles, in terms of scope and conceptualization. An essay is thus advised to be between 3,000-5,000 words.
3. Notes: A note is a relatively concise form of an argument advanced by the author. The focus of a note should be on a relatively new debate or controversy regarding the interpretation or implementation in the law. Notes shall primarily highlight contemporary issues, which need to be addressed, and the authors are expected to offer a solution. The maximum word limit for a manuscript in the form of note is 2,500 words.
4. Comments: A comment is where the author may decide to critique any recent/landmark judicial pronouncement or any recent legislation or bill before the Parliament or State Legislature. The word limit for a comment is 2,500 words.

Submission Guidelines:
1. Word Limit: As has already been indicated, the maximum word limit for articles and essays is 5,000 words (exclusive of footnotes) whereas that for notes and comments is 2,500 words (exclusive of footnotes).
2. Citation Format: The citation format to be used is The Bluebook (19th ed.). In keeping with the same, speaking footnotes are discouraged.
3. Abstract: Every submission should be accompanied by an abstract of not more than 350 words describing the relevant conclusions drawn in the manuscript. Please note that there is no requirement of prior submission of abstract as the selection of the paper for publication shall be on the full manuscript. The abstract shall serve merely to help the Editorial Board in its review process.
4. Biographical Information of Authors: A separate document with biographical information of the authors must also be attached including the following details: Name, E mail address, Postal Address, Name and Address of Institution, Course (if applicable), Academic Year.

Plagiarism Guidelines:
As per the International Journal of Legal Research and Governance Policy on Academic Misconduct, “plagiarism” means failure to acknowledge ideas or phrases from another source. Such source is not limited to published text. Acknowledgement of others’ work is expected even if the source was a discussion (whether oral or written) with another person, or use of materials on the internet.
1. Multiple submissions are not allowed: “Multiple Submission” means submitting the same, or largely the same, piece of work in more than one journal or competition, without written permission from the instructors involved and or recycling of any part of a previously written piece of work whether or not published without appropriate reference to their your own prior work. Prior permission shall be required if the recycled work forms more than 5% of the new work.
2. Misrepresenting work: Misrepresenting work prepared by another as one’s own means submitting work that has been prepared by someone else (whether for payment or not) as one’s own work. This would include instances where excessive help is taken from another person such that the assessment objective and intention of the assignment/ exercise is frustrated.
Note: It is assumed that work submitted is represented as being authored by the person on whose behalf it is submitted. Falsification of Work Product is falsifying, concocting or misrepresenting of data, statistics, or other observations/ information.
All submissions should be made electronically at ijlrgjournal@gmail.com . The last date for submission of manuscripts is 30th April, 2016.
