About the Blog
The Quest Socio-Legal Review is an initiative by law students. It is a continuous search of new ideas, opinions, and contributing towards an informed citizenry, taking the example of India’s Constitution, which in itself is an amalgamation of law with various other aspects of social sciences. The Quest Socio-legal Review is an effort to explore law and interdisciplinary approaches to law by drawing on insights from multiple disciplines- history, economics, and social sciences.
