An article should be between 4,000-5,000 words.

2. Essays: An essay is more adventurous as it challenges challenging existing paradigms/norms and provides a fresh outlook to common problems.

The focus of a note should be on a relatively new debate or controversy regarding the interpretation or implementation in the law.
