The Indian Journal of Projects, Infrastructure, and Energy Law (IJPIEL) is calling for papers on a variety of themes.
About the Journal
The Indian Journal of Projects, Infrastructure, and Energy Law (IJPIEL) is a student-run quarterly law journal, blog, and podcast. The journal focuses on the niche area of Projects, Infrastructure, and Energy (PIE) laws. In the post-pandemic scenario, they believe that the focus of global markets will be, among other goals, to create Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure (SDG 9) and Alternative Sources of Energy (SDG 7).
This is particularly important for India, which is slated to be one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. However, the same is not possible without achieving SDG 17 – Peace & Strong Institutions of Justice.
