Having successfully organized four National Essay Writing Competitions in the past, to promote original legal writing and research work in the field of law, we are delighted to bring to you the first edition of our National Environmental Law Essay Writing Competition. As stated by our Honorable Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, “people’s participation is the essence of good governance”, and with India as the second most populous country in the world, we need to ensure that people have a big role to play to help the government achieve goals and shape successful policies.
LexQuest is pleased to invite you to put forward your views on the relationship between public participation and the implementation of environmental laws and how this may translate into good environmental governance.
