Indian Journal of Project Infrastructure and Energy Law is a student-run quarterly law journal, blog, and podcast. The journal focuses upon the niche area of Projects, Infrastructure and Energy (PIE) laws. In the post pandemic scenario, we believe that the focus of global markets will be, among other goals, to create Sustainable & Resilient Infrastructure (SDG 9) and Alternative Sources of Energy (SDG 7). This is particularly important for India, which is slated to be one of the world’s fastest growing economies. However, the same is not possible without achieving SDG 17 – Peace & Strong Institutions of Justice.
We at IJPIEL, wish to support and propel this nascent area of study and practice, through discourse and conversation. IJPIEL aims to bring to the fore clarity for crucial terms such as Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) and Procurement (and the different steps and documents involved in the same), which require greater enquiry for both students and young professionals.
The manuscripts selected for publication by the editorial team are closely reviewed by the IJPIEL’s board of advisors, comprising Mr. Kiran Kumar Kapila (Chairman & MD, Intercontinental Consultants & Technocrats), Mr. Kuldip Singh (Former Chief Engineer, Punjab Public Works Department [PWD]), Ms. Kyriaki Noussia (Lecturer at the School of Law, University of Exeter), Mr. Samarth Chaddha (Former Associate, AZB & Partners; Founder, LLM Guru), Mr. Vibhore Chaturvedi (Senior Associate, Fox Mandal, Mumbai) and Mr. Guranpreet Singh Sarna (Associate Partner, Dhir & Dhir Associates and Solicitors).
