"I realise that some of my criticisms may be mistaken; but to refuse to criticize judgements for fear of being mistaken is to abandon criticism altogether... If any of my criticisms are found to be correct, the cause is served; and if any are found to be incorrect the very process of finding out my mistakes must lead to the discovery of the right reasons, or better reasons than I have been able to give, and the cause is served just as well."

-Mr. HM Seervai, Preface to the 1st ed., Constitutional Law of India.

Call for Students Paper for NLSIR Symposium

Call for Student Papers from NLSIR Symposium:

Call for Student Papers: The 8th Annual NLSIR Symposium on Competition Law

The National Law School of India Review (NLSIR) is the flagship journal of the National Law School of India University, Bangalore. For more than 25 years, it has been at the forefront of legal scholarship on issues relevant to legal practitioners. As part of its increasing mandate this year, in association with Amarchand Mangaldas, it is organizing the 8th edition of its Annual Symposium on Competition Law. The Symposium seeks to engage with legal issues that have arisen in the decade-long competition law regime, especially over the past two years, and thus hopes to fill the lacunae in current analysis.

Towards this end, the NLSIR is pleased to call for Student Papers for the 8th Annual NLSIR Symposium on Competition Law. The students whose papers are selected will also get a chance to present them at the Symposium which is scheduled to be held on the 2-3rd of May, 2015 in Bangalore. The selected papers will also be published as part of Vol. 27(2) of our journal which will be a special issue on competition law.

The paper may be submitted on any one of the following themes:-

Session I: Section 3 and Determining Anti-Competitive Agreements 
Session II: The Abusive Conduct of Dominant Enterprises
Session III: Mergers and Acquisitions: Clearing the CCI Hurdle and the Competition between Regulators
Session IV: The Interface of Intellectual Property Rights and Competition Law in India

For more details please refer to our concept note, attached herewith.  

The papers should be a minimum of 3500 words, inclusive of footnotes. They are preferred in Times New Roman font, double-spaced. Main text should be in font size 12 and footnotes in font size 10. All submissions must be word processed, and compatible with Microsoft Word 2003 and 2007. The NLSIR uses only footnotes (and not end-notes) as a method of citation. Submissions must conform to the Bluebook (19th edn.) system of citation.

The papers must be emailed to mail.nlsir@gmail.com indicating the session for which the paper is intended under the subject heading.
