Jindal Global Law School-Insolvency Law Working Paper Series (JGILS) is conceptualized to generate discourse through open source working papers and discussions.
In its specific area and interconnections, JGILS is engineered to enable the advancement of literature in insolvency and bankruptcy and increase dialogue between policy, theory, implementation and research; locally and globally.
The JGILS Editorial Board will set the standard for content and submissions will be on a bi-annual basis. All accepted working papers are available for access and reading.

The papers contained herein speak to wide-ranging topics related to the major themes in the development, open issues and key perspectives around insolvency, bankruptcy, debt resolution, reorganization and restructures.

JGILS welcomes submissions from academic staff, visiting fellows, post-graduate students, young working professionals and field experts. PhD students wishing to publish their paper in JGILS are required to have an email of support from their supervisor. We, at JGILS, encourage supervisors and exam boards to nominate especially strong dissertations for an invitation to publish in JGILS. JGILS accepts both peer-reviewed and pre-peer review papers.
JGILS also encourages all authors to ensure that publishing their research as a working paper will not jeopardize their chances of publishing in peer-review journals. This varies across disciplines and journals; JGILS (including the JGILS-EB) is not responsible for making these checks.
New published submissions on JGILS are posted on official social media channels. In addition, JGILS invites and strongly encourages authors to write a short blogpost for inclusion in the JGILS Research Blog. The blog post should be written in an accessible way with a relatively wide audience in mind as a standalone piece, linking to the specific working paper in question. Posts should not be longer than 800 words or can be ‘snap’ pieces of 400 words. Select manuscripts that are accepted and published with JGILS may be called for presentation at the JGILS Annual Colloquium.
All manuscripts to JGILS must be submitted in accordance with the JGILS Submission Guidelines set out below. Submission in non-compliance will be rejected.
