About the Journal
Legal Rioters seeks to provide a platform to everyone who wishes to write or analyze any legal or interrelated areas of law and economy, law and technology, or purely analytical work. It seeks to foster research and writing skills. We respect your thoughts, whether you hail from NLIU or ILNU, quality knows no boundaries, nor does this platform. In this age of fast news and 30-second sound bites, a blog serves to fill the gap that a journal cannot. It gives space for analysis of an event before it loses its relevance altogether. This is why we at Legal Rioters have decided to start our very own blog on matters of law and other areas of the society.
