About the Journal

The Journal on Dispute Resolution (‘JODR’) is the flagship biannual journal of the Mediation Clinic, published under the aegis of the West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata. It is an open-access, student-reviewed journal, that aims to provide a platform for the discussion of national as well as international developments in the field of dispute resolution.

The Journal seeks to strike a balance between practical and academic contributions on issues which form the forefront of contemporary legal discourse.
