About the Organiser

Indian Law Journal on Crime & Criminology (ILJCC), operating under the aegis of the Droit Penale Group: A Unit of Arjun Das Gulati Memorial Society, Prayagraj, is inviting submissions on contemporary issues related to Criminal Law & Criminology for publication in the Sixth volume, Issue 1 & 2 of the journal.

About the Journal

The term Droit Penale literally means criminal law. It has a French origin and deals with the various facets of crime and criminology. As a massive field of academic study, Criminology tends to cover criminal law and jurisprudence apart from dealing with crimes and criminal and socially deviant behaviour of criminals.

While Criminal law mainly focuses on the punishments coupled or labelled with such criminal behaviour. The ILJCC, a student-friendly law journal, has emerged bearing the idea to capitulate a thorough approach towards all these fields.

It aims at providing a detailed analysis and assimilation of various issues on a single rostrum contrary to the concept of dealing with fields of criminal law and criminology separately.

Further, the journal also features the works, opinions, and viewpoints of the greatest jurists of all times blended with the modern critical approaches towards their work.
