IBR is a student-led initiative that intends to foster academic research and discussion in the fields of insolvency, bankruptcy, and company liquidation, amongst other areas. IBR aims to fill the dearth of neutral academic writing on the aforementioned subject area by publishing articles on its online blog and eventually increasing its ambit.

The general guidelines for submission are as follows:

1. The article should address relevant issues in areas of insolvency, bankruptcy, restructuring, liquidation, and similar laws. Submissions may be in the form of case comments, legislation review, policy suggestions, etc. Contemporary pieces focused on analysis are encouraged.

3. The article must be submitted in Microsoft Word format.

5. The title of the article must be limited to 120 (one hundred twenty) characters.

6. The document containing the article must not contain any identifying features of the author(s) as we follow a double-blind review policy.

The formatting guidelines for submission are as follows:
