ABOUT THE CENTRE FOR STUDIES AND RESEARCH IN LAND, MINING AND REAL ESTATE LAWS
The Centre for Research and Studies in Land, Mining, and Real Estate Laws ('CRSLMREL') was set up at WBNUJS during the academic year 2019-20. The Centre functions under the leadership and supervision of Dr. M.P. Chengappa [Assistant Professor (Law), NUJS].
Issues related to land acquisition, real estate, and mining laws are fundamental to questions pertaining to environmental law, the efficacy of regulatory regimes, the functioning of the market economy, and social welfare. Therefore, discourse around the land, mining, and real estate laws are critical. Many law firms across the country have dedicated teams, especially for this purpose. The pendency of cases pertaining to these fields shows that land acquisition, real estate related disputes, and mining regulations form a very crucial field in the legal industry.
CRSLMREL aims to create awareness and guide discourse in the aforementioned fields in academia by conducting studies, consulting with stakeholders, creating resource materials, and conducting capacity-building programs with industry professionals.
