The advisory panel of the journal includes numerous renowned legal luminaries. Prof. Rose Varghese (Former Vice Chancellor NUALS, KOCHI), Prof. S Z Amani (Former Dean Faculty of Law Jamia Millia Islamia), Dr. Malika Gautam (Advocate at Supreme Court of India and Counsel at The International Court of Justice, The Hague), Dr. Shouvik Kumar Guha (Faculty, WBNUJS) and several eminent advocates and many distinguished faculties of prominent universities are on the board as standard-bearers of the journal.
