Competition for LL.B Students : Judicial Activism for Sustainability: LEGAL EYES
Environmental jurisprudence in India has been evolving for many years now. This needs to be expanded to cover issues related to climate change and several aspects of sustainable development. In fact, the Agenda 2030 document emphasizes the need to look at all SDGs in an integrated, indivisible manner. But, is our judicial system attuned to this approach?
The ‘Legal Eyes’ is an attempt to evaluate the readiness of the Indian judicial system to promote sustainable development. The activity is open for all Ll.B students from India and involves identifying appropriate judgment/s of the Supreme Court of India & High Courts relating to the environmental/social protection and critically analyze them from the SDG perspective.
The students can participate as an individual and submit only one entry along with a certificate from the head of the Institute indicating that the participant is a bonafide LL. B student.
- The write-up should be of up to 2000 words (excluding footnotes) and will be evaluated at two levels. Firstly, by an internal committee, who will check plagiarism, word limit, footnoting and other technical requirements and thereafter by an external Jury comprising of three renowned legal academics/law practitioners from outside TERI SAS.
- Out of the submissions, five best entries will get book vouchers worth INR 10,000 each and a chance to speak at the Grand Finale of Climate Jamboree. Apart from this appreciation certificates will be given to all participating students.
- The last date to make submissions is 15th of September 2018 and results will be announced on 15th October 2018. Grand Finale of Climate Jamboree is scheduled for 1-3 November 2018.
