Objective

I shifted to Goa from Delhi to run away from pollution, but there is no where to run. Even the remaining paradises will be destroyed in ywars to come unless we fight back. Public Interest Litigation is an amazing tool we can use to fight projects and activities that are not sustainable, that are changing the climate and irreversibly damaging the future of our next generation. As a lawyer, I want to empower the creative and influential lot to use the law to fight back against those who are damaging the only planet we have irreversibly for a little more cash right now. The promise is that when you leave my session, you will be ready to fight legal battles against people who pollute.

Description

I will cover the following aspects:
- How to identify environmental violations - How to collect evidence - How to approach the court - How to find pro bono lawyers to fight on your behalf - How to file a case and where to file it - How much resources will be required

Requirements

an open mind
