Even if not all law school projects are works of exceptional piece of writing and research, these can serve as a good starting point, a good literature review, a good over-view to build upon.
Some of these are actually exceptional works, and deserve a wider audience and comments from those who care.
Jusprudentia intends to provides opportunities to all this. Jusprudentia will serve as a platform to publish legal research papers and notes of all kinds.
With our free and open access policy and liberal commenting guidelines, the research papers can be studied and commented upon by anyone with an access to internet.
GET A PUBLICATION OR CONTRIBUTE ANONYMOUSLY
When you contribute to Jusprudentia, you have 2 choices:
- You can get your projects published in your name and if the work is exceptional you can even get a publication with an ISSN number.
- If for some reason want the project/notes to be published anonymously (say the quality is not good or you don’t want your names to be up), they can also do so.
Remember our ethos is that all knowledge is useful and hence this provision of publishing ‘average’ papers ‘anonymously’.
The best papers will be award by Jusprudentia!
