About the Conference: The national conference of environmental law faculties is a comparatively new and creative initiative with an aim to create a national level network of environmental law faculties so that fruitful interventions can be made with respect to the policies and laws relating to the environment. It is the need of the hour to have healthy outcome-based debates on key environmental issues and policies. The conference is committed towards having lively discussions on feasibility and appropriateness on different mitigation pathways as well as highly debatable topics such as carbon neutrality, net-zero emissions. The conference will be held virtually on 21st December 2021.
