  3. Wherever case law, statutory materials or other resources are being referred to, appropriate links must be provided to those in the main text itself. For Indian case law, contributors may provide links to the case, if available, at, or the website of the relevant court.
  4. Analytical posts are preferred over descriptive ones.
  5. Through their submissions, the contributors confirm that the work represents their original contribution, and that it has not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works.
