Environmental law is often romanticized, but rarely understood. In every law school, in every class, there are a few people who want to be great environmental warriors and heroes, saving species and forests from destruction from human greed. However, hardly any of them turn out to be environmental lawyer in reality.

 

Modern management has developed a highly evolved system of environmental compliances and safeguarding. However, most lawyers are taught preciously little about this. While they may study some basic case laws and a few statutory provisions, these are mere alphabets and do not even begin to train you in the basics of environmental law. Environmental law is a technical area of legal work that requires practical knowledge and understanding of more than just law. You need to grasp concepts of management, science, engineering, sociology and some anthropology to be an effective environmental lawyer.

 

There is a great need of good lawyers to come to this area of practice. It is disheartening that it is very difficult to find good environmental lawyers in our country. Very often, even large corporations which are ready to pay good money have a tough time to find an environmental law experts. On the other hand, there are exclusive boutique law firms that have done very well by simply practicing environmental law.

 

Even large law firms as well a corporations engaged in industries like manufacturing, mining and infrastructure projects are increasingly needing environmental lawyers. As all these sectors are seeing major push under the Modi government, with a clear agenda to invest and grow these sectors as fast as possible, the demand can only be expected to rise fast in the years to come.

 

Keeping the ground realities in mind, iPleaders has invited a very successful environmental lawyer who argues cases before environmental tribunals frequently and advises the industry on environmental compliances to organize a 2 day workshop (8 hours) in Kolkata.

 

The location for the workshop is Sector V, Salt Lake, Kolkata.

 

Date: 22-23 September
