CfP: Webinar on The Future of Environmental Litigation in India by CEERA, NLSIU [Aug 7-8]: Register by Aug 4

About the Institute

The National Law School of India University, the Nation’s premier law university, came into existence through a Notification under the National Law School of India University Act (Karnataka Act 22 of 1986). It signified the culmination of efforts by the Judiciary, the Bar Council of India, the Karnataka Bar Council, the Bangalore University and the Government of Karnataka to reform legal education and to establish a center of excellence for legal education and research in India.

Centre for Environmental Law Education, Research and Advocacy (CEERA), established in 1997 is a benefactor of the Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MoEF&CC), Government of Karnataka, the Bar and the Bench in India and abroad.

About the Webinar

Owing to the dynamic nature of environmental problems, there is a possibility that the institutional structure to ensure environmental protection may not be well-equipped to meet the need of the hour. Therefore, in circumstances such as these, there is a need to reflect on the role of environmental litigation to best address environmental issues.

In light of this, the webinar on “The Future of Environmental Litigation in India” aims to understand and analyze the contours of environmental litigation in India and its future prospects as an instrument for achieving environmental justice.
