The Jindal Global Law Review invites submissions from scholars, jurists and other professionals for its March 2011 issue on the theme of ‘The Changing Role of Law in Asia: Revolution or Devolution?’ The issue will explore the effect of the evolution of laws and regulations in Asia with particular attention to the contemporary social, political and economic landscape of Asia. Some of the significant questions that may be considered for this issue include - How relevant are Asian culture, history and norms to understanding the changing face of its law? Is it time to evolve a new Asian analytic that looks towards a transforming and unifying global legal environment? Or is the law being used as a shield to prevent a possible revolution arising from globalization? To what extent are Asian countries influenced by each other and western views and critiques in their legal evolution? Can we characterize legal evolution in Asia as transformative or reductive? Submissions should highlight and question the Asian context of the law, though the perspectives provided need not be exclusively Asian. Works from a diversity of legal disciplines as well as of an inter-disciplinary perspective will be considered.
