What is Environmental Law / What is a Career in Environmental Law: Environmental law, also known as environmental and natural resources law, is a collective term describing the network of treaties, statutes, regulations, common and customary laws addressing the effects of human activity on the natural environment. The core environmental law regimes address environmental pollution. A related but distinct set of regulatory regimes, now strongly influenced by environmental legal principles, focus on the management of specific natural resources, such as forests, minerals, or fisheries.
Environmental Law Course / How I got into Environmental Law: "After completing a degree in Law, I interned with WWF India for two months. While working with them, I realised this was a field where I wanted to work for the rest of my life. Even since I have been working with WWF India as an Environmental Lawyer."
