Trade, Law and Development (TL&D) is an academic journal of legal and related interdisciplinary scholarship published by an independent student group at National Law University, Jodhpur.

Overview[edit]

Trade, Law and Development focuses on issues of relevance to the international economic order, legal system and development, as well as policy issues. TL&D is the first journal in the field of international economic law and policy to use an open source publishing software.[1]

TL&D seeks to generate and sustain a democratic debate on issues of international economic law and governance, of relevance to the developing world in particular. The Journal is a signatory to the Budapest Open Access Initiative and is indexed on the PKP-Open Archives Harvester2 archive. In addition, contents of TL&D are available on the HeinOnline database (under a Creative Commons license). TL&D publishes "Articles", "Notes", "Comments", and "Book Reviews". The journal was established by Shashank P. Kumar.[2]

Trade, Law and Development is a biannual journal. Apart from the journal website, where all works are available for free and open access as soon as each issue is published, each issue of TL&D is published in hard-copy, as well. Apart from the regular issues, the journal publishes a special issue each year on a relatively under-explored topic or issue of contemporary relevance to the developing world. Previous special issues have covered areas such as international investment law. The 2011 special issue focuses on "Third-World Approached to International Law". The 2012 special issue is dedicated to "Dispute Settlement at the WTO".

Ranking[edit]

Trade, Law and Development was ranked the best law journal from India (highest Impact Factor and highest Combined Score) for 2011 by the Washington and Lee University School of Law.[3] This marks an improvement in the journal's second rank based on Combined Score for 2010.
