BDLD-Bangladesh Law Digest, a student-run law journal of Bangladesh, started its journey in June 2015 with a view to providing the lawyers, legal researchers and law students of Bangladesh a brilliant platform to dissect, scrutinize and synthesize various critical and thought-provoking legal issues. It aims to hone legal research and writing skills of the students; two fundamental skills required to thrive in the legal field as well as publishing write-ups that serve both the legal practitioners and academicians alike.
