Submission Guidelines for CCADR Blog

  • Submissions are accepted in all areas of ADR.
  • The length of the submission must be between 1,500 and 2,000 words. The title must be no more than ten words long.
  • If at all, footnotes should be kept to a minimum. Submissions with an excessive amount of footnoting will be rejected.
  • Wherever a submission relates to case law or other resources, suitable links must be provided in the main text. Contributors for Indian case law may give links to the case, if accessible, at or the relevant court's website. Factual assertions must be accompanied by suitable citations.
  • It is unnecessary to give links to well-known Indian statutory sources, such as the Companies Act, 2013 or the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996. Links, on the other hand, are preferred for recent revisions to Indian statutes or regulations, as well as references to foreign law.
  • Please avoid using terms like “petitioner,” "appellant", “respondent,” and the like when discussing case law, and instead refer to the parties by their full names.
  • Posts that are analytical are favoured above those that are descriptive. Relevance, quality, structure, logic, and writing style will all be taken into account when deciding whether or not to publish a post.

Contributor Agreement

  • Contributors confirm that the work is their original contribution and that it has not been duplicated or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works through their submissions.
  • Contributors must state any actual or potential conflicts of interest they may have in respect to the subject matter of their contribution.

Submission Process

  • Submissions must be submitted using this link only.
  • Submissions must be typed in Times New Roman font, size 12, line spacing 1.5, and style "Normal" in MS Word.
  • Authors must insert a brief biographical statement (no more than two lines) below the title at the top of the post. “Ms. X is a partner at ABC Law Firm in Mumbai,” for example, or “Mr. Y is a third-year B.A., LL.B. (Hons.) Student at PQR Law School in New Delhi.”
  • Each entry must include up to three keywords from the list of "Topics" in the Blog's right-hand sidebar.
  • Before submitting their posts, we strongly encourage prospective authors to review existing posts on the Blog to obtain a sense for both the substantive and formatting requirements.
  • Each submission will be reviewed by one or more Editors of the Blog, who retain their absolute discretion in determining whether to accept a post and, if accepted, whether the post requires revisions. Contributors must work with the Editors to incorporate suggested revisions and comments. Given the large volume of submissions, the Editors are not in a position to provide feedback on each rejected submission.
