Glocalex is pleased to announce their first Article Writing Competition (The Writing Oasis) 2020.

This competition is open to articles written by undergraduate law students from any recognised university/college.

Glocalex’s Writing Oasis aims to encourage law students across various colleges, through a quality article writing competition to develop an original thought process and analyse not only international but also municipal contemporary issues adversely affecting humankind.

The pre-condition is to understand the role of law and to find innovative solutions to the problems. Our primary objective is to develop a sense of enthusiasm among law students towards legal research and provide them an opportunity to exhibit their skills.

The students participating will not only get a chance to win cash prizes, internship opportunities and publication at Glocalex but will also help them widen their perspective while elucidating on various legal aspects.
