Environmental protection is one the great challenges of the modern world. The significance of Environmental Law in fostering equitable sustainable development is now well recognized all over the world. In the National and Regional context, the challenge is how the law can be instrumental in providing a balance between the concerns of ecology, urbanization, over-growth of population, and the growing industrial and commercial demands of modern times. In this context, the University Law College, Lahore, intends to offer a Diploma in Environmental Law. The main objective of this course is to equip students with the knowledge of the basis of Environmental Law and appropriate related knowledge, so that with this grounding they can proceed to gain further expertise in any specific area of environmental law, either in Pakistan or abroad.
