IGNOU to offer new course in environmental law

New Delhi, Dec 11: The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) would start a new course on environmental law from July 2010, a varsity official said on Friday. The Post Graduate diploma course would be run by IGNOU in association with the World Wide Fund’s (WWF-India) Centre for Environmental Law (CEL). V N Rajasekharan Pillai, the IGNOU vice chancellor, said that IGNOU is also interested in introducing programmes in conservation of species and biodiversity. IGNOU may also offer these programmes to other universities. Ravi Singh, secretary general and CEO of WWF-India, said the new course would hopefully spread knowledge and awareness about enviro-legal matters to a wider audience. A masters programme in environmental law is also on the anvil, he said. (IANS)
