In the background of growing importance of the technology and energy related laws, a study of nuclear law has great use for operators of nuclear plants, vendors, legal practitioners, officers of AEC and BARC and the general public.
This is a unique and highly useful course in understanding the laws relating to liability for nuclear damage, nuclear safety and regulation regime, nuclear non proliferation and safeguards in addition to knowing about basic principles of nuclear law .
