From the Editor's Desk

Himachal Pradesh National Law University, Shimla (HPNLU) has been fostering discussions on various issues interrelated with the law and legal system. This has been possible by focusing on promotion of deliberations beyond the four walls of the classrooms. In this pursuit, the University has many in-house publications and the HPNLU Law Journal is one of them.

The HPNLU Law Journal has been envisioned to be a platform for bringing various academicians at one platform through their writing. The Journal is founded on the idea of inter-disciplinary study of law to create long-term impact on the system and ultimately the society.

Research and writing have multi-pronged benefits – first, they enhance the quality formulation of laws, second, they help in identification of the issues associated with the formulated laws, third, they provide the way forward for dealing with these issues, fourth, they provide research scholars with insightful discourses that ultimately form the bottom line for further research, and fifth, they help in improving the discussions within the classroom, thereby allowing students studying law to look at law and legal system from varied perspectives.

Writing and publication also have the role of elevating and liberating society. History has umpteen evidence of how writing has affected the society in bringing apposite revolution and fostering egalitarian society. The discourses fostered by publications are not parametric in character, rather they tend to change the existing discourse. It is in this sense of change that the HPNLU Law Journal tries to bring academicians and discourses together.
It gives me immense pleasure to inform you that this volume of the HLJ includes articles on topics such as – legal pluralism, data protection bill, commodification of household labour, federalism and issues thereof, laws related to epidemic, forensic sciences and investigation thereof, etc.
HPNLU, Shimla takes pride in the fact that it holds high the flag of promoting quality learning and knowledge exchange free of cost. It achieves this goal by making its publications freely accessible through its official website. I am sure that this volume of HLJ would add to the existing pool of knowledge.
