International Scientific And Practical Conference «Ecolaw As A New Reality Of Legal Science» was held at the Kutafin Moscow State Law University (MSAL)

On March 15, 2022, an International Scientific and Practical Conference International Scientific and Practical Conference “Ecolaw as a new reality of legal science in the context of global climate change: the experience of Russia and India" was held at the Moscow State Law University.

The event was organized by the International Cooperation Department, and the Center of Сompetence “Ecolaw” of Kutafin Moscow State Law University (MSAL) and the International Alliance of Lawyers and Economists (Lyon, France).

The dynamic development of the economy and human-induced hazards often lead to serious environmental problems and changes in the climate. India is participating in the implementation of the global Climate Agenda 2030 aimed at ensuring inclusive growth and low-carbon development of the country. The climate agenda not only expands scientific legal knowledge, but it also sets the challenge of transforming the legal mechanism for ecology and including climate problems in it. Ecolaw is a complex branch of law aimed at regulating relations in the field of environmental protection, the use of natural resources and the minimization of climate change, in particular, using audit and monitoring regulations, technical norms and environmental standards.

The need for theoretical study and practical implementation of eco-law at the level of environmental services and environmental protection agencies comes from new legal issues that need to be addressed in view of the climate agenda.

Major Indian legal scholars and leading experts in Hindu law have been invited to discuss a range of topical legal issues.

The moderators of the conference were Maria Egorova, Head of the International Cooperation Department of the Kutafin Moscow State Law University (MSAL), co-president of International Alliance of Lawyers and Economists (Lyon, France), Doctor of Law, Professor (Russia), Natalia Voronina, Deputy Head of the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources Law of the Kutafin Moscow State Law University (MSAL), Doctor of Law, Professor (Russia), Sangita Laha, Doctor in Law, Associate Professor & Dean, National University of Study & Research in Law, Ranchi (India), Kumar Niteesh Upadhyay, Assistant Professor of Law of Galgotias University, Founder and Guest Faculty of American Romanian University (India).
