Call for Papers: Cholamandal IP’s Environmental Law Research Paper Competition

Cholamandal IP invites law college students, law researchers and legal professionals across India to write Research Papers on a unique Environmental Law issue – Cholamandal IP want you to recognize one specific environmental issue or problem that may happen in the near future. To elaborate, recognize trends that are contributing towards a serious environmental issue that may disrupt the lives of people and harm their health, including that of the environment, if they are not stopped or actions are not taken soon to check the damage.

Research on this issue by considering the environmental and legal aspects of it. This topic will take considerable research as you will be working to identify possible environmental issues that have not happened yet, but are foreseeable due to the blatant environmental disregard and non-adherence to environmental laws.

It is advisable that you research on such an environmental issue in your local area or area of residence. It could be an environmental breach that affects the soil, land, water, air, thermal, industrial, noise, light, human and animal health, biodiversity etc. This competition is for the welfare of the country and the efforts of the applicants will make a small step into ensuring that an issue such as the toxic smog issue in Delhi, UP and Haryana does not take place in the near future.
