Lecture on 'Weather Extremities and Disasters in Uttarakhand Himalayas: manifestation of Climate Change' by Mr. Navin Juyal

With its base in Delhi, CCRI runs courses throughout India in remote rural areas where access to high-quality legal and human rights education is hard to find, as well as in the metro cities. We bring theory, practice, and law together into an integrated and multidisciplinary program. CCRI specialises in public interest law, social activism and access to justice. We offer a radical and comprehensive curriculum from the perspective of defending poor and marginalised people. Our courses are designed and built around the specific issues and concerns of the time and place in which they are delivered. This is done to enable us to respond immediately to critical situations by providing training to local lawyers and activists on how to use the law to combat injustice."

The Centre is pleased to announce a lecture series on Climate Change and the Law. The first lecture in the series was held on 22.5.2021 by Mr. Navin Juyal, a retired senior scientist from Physical Research Lab (Department of Space unit) Ahmedabad.
