About MyLAWMAN YearBook 2019-2020
MyLawman Yearbook (earlier as LAWMAN Year Roundup) first published in 2015 with an objective to redo all the good content of the MyLawman (earlier LAWMAN). 
Yearbook 2019 includes few articles from the 2019 roundup and few others from the outside. YearBook sums up the idea of dissemination of legal research. On the same line it is circulated around the corners of the world including some top law schools of the world like Missouri Western University, Texam AM Law School, other European, Australian, Japanese, Chinese and South Asian and African Law Schools.
MyLAWMAN invites for papers/comments/research notes on any areas of Law and Society, policies and politics with an extension of related subjects of International diplomacy and relation, Law of Conflict and Peace Studies and Governance. 

Submission Guidelines

Kindly go through our Submission Guidelines and Plagiarism Policy, Referencing Guidelines and Formatting Guidelines before submitting your manuscripts. Please note that we accept only original work (it is fine if you have published it somewhere else, just let us know). We expect our contributors to adhere to the highest levels of academic honesty and ethics.

Plagiarism Policy

We understand that new ideas and views are formed and inspired while reading and understanding other’s ideas and views. It is therefore important to acknowledge the inputs and insights that an earlier work might have lent to your work. We at Lexpress condemn any manner of academic theft and plagiarism. We specifically condemn the following:
  • A verbatim copy of another’s work without acknowledgement.
  • Close paraphrasing of another’s work without acknowledgement.
We also discourage extreme referencing with no or very little input from the author.

Referencing Guidelines
It is important to note that if in a particular work you have not referred to any previous work and it is only a narration of incidents or your own views and opinions on an incident or subject, then no referencing would be required. However, if you have taken help of earlier work/s or your article builds on or discusses another’s work then referencing would be mandatory.
At MyLawman, we prefer the ILI Citation Style for referencing styles. Please include a bibliography at the end of your manuscript, listing out your references.

Formatting Guidelines
  • Font Size and Type. Font for text all throughout the paper should be 12-pt., Times New Roman.
  • Spacing. Double-space for the whole document, including appendices, footnotes, tables and figures (if any). For spacing after punctuation, space once after commas, colons and semicolons within sentences and space twice after punctuation marks that end sentences.
  • Text Alignment and Indentation. The Document should be justified.i.e text is spaced so that the left and right sides of the text block both have a straight edge. Single indentation wherever thought appropriate.
  • Active Voice. we would prefer if you wrote in an active voice. An example of this would be, instead of writing “according to the study,” it should be “according to our study.” This way, papers are made to be as active as possible.
  • Order of Pages. The order of pages should follow this format:Title Page > Abstract > Body > References > Appendices > Footnotes > Tables > Figures
