A bimonthly, Combat Law brings together diverse voices united against all forms of discrimination and exploitation in order to engage in an active, meaningful discussion and foster a climate for legal activism in pursuit of crafting a more tolerant, just, democratic and equitable world. The bimonthly provides its readers with sharp insights into some of the most pressing legal/human rights issues of our times. Our writers comprise experts, lawyers, professors and journalists, who more often are also activists, and are amongst the leaders in their fields. Though a bimonthly, Combat Law also releases special issues without adhering to the bimonthly schedule when urgent and contemporary topics require it.

COMBAT LAW is the voice of lawyers and social activists who form the cutting edge of legal activism in India – a collaborative effort to forge a platform bringing together experiences, strategies and all expressions of struggle. Crisply written, the content is useful to not only legal practitioners, but also to activists’ groups, academicians, students and all those interested in an alternative and progressive viewpoint. Recently, we have upgraded the design, layout and the content of the magazine. To further strengthen our endeavour in the pursuit of human rights, we are looking for your support, as in contributions of articles/sponsorship through advertisements or subscription/donations to sustain this unique Human Rights bimonthly.
The online version of Combat Law will be uploaded soon after the print edition is out. The complete magazine is available online to all subscribers of the print edition.
The Team
The magazine was founded by Colin Gonsalves and Mihir Desai, both lawyers practicing in Indian courts. The entire team is dedicated to the struggle for rights and believes in the effective use of the justice system as one way of strengthening resistance.
