About the Blog
CorpLexia is a legal blog for the next generation of lawyers, professionals, academics and students focused on the realm of corporate, commercial, financial, insolvency, securities, arbitration and competition laws, who are energised by ambition and striving for perfection.
Believing in the free discourse of knowledge, CorpLexia aims to break away from the hardwired practice of caging the very cutting edge of legal research and intellectual output in a close-ended journal, away from open and free access. We endeavour to put forth authoritative, inquisitive and well-researched publications that stand the test of our readers’ intellectual vigour.
Corporate, commercial, financial, insolvency, competition, securities, arbitration laws, etc.
CorpLexia welcomes professional, eloquent and substantive articles & editorials in the realm of corporate, commercial, financial, insolvency, competition, securities, arbitration laws, etc., from all legal minds whether lawyers, professionals, academics, students etc. Said submissions must be the original and unpublished work of the author. The credit for the blog posts shall vest with the authors only.
All submissions must follow the following guidelines:
- Legal Articles: An Article makes an in-depth analysis of the nuances and developments of the subject matters dealt with by CorpLexia. These focus on analysing provisions of law along with judicial decisions and legal developments, however, authors are free to devise their own style of articles subject to approval by the Editorial Board. The word limit of the article shall be between 1000-2500 words excluding footnotes. Any waiver of this criterion would only be allowed when found necessary.
