The Indian Journal of Projects, Infrastructure and Energy Law (IJPIEL), founded in July 2020, is a student-run, not for profit Quarterly Law Journal, Blog and Podcast. The journal aims to focus upon the niche area of Projects, Infrastructure and Energy Laws (PIE). In the post-pandemic scenario, it goes without saying that the focus of global markets will be to create Sustainable & Resilient Infrastructure (SDG 9) and Alternative Sources of Energy (SDG 7).
Projects, Infrastructure and Energy are imperative to the growth of any nation’s future. India has been ADB’s top borrower since 2010- with the bank committing over 239 sovereign loans totalling over 42 Billion USD in the last 34 years to the nation. This staggering amount is just the tip of the iceberg as India is also a member of numerous other International Financial Institutions (IFIs) such as the World Bank and the New Development Bank (NDB).
Many of these projects are carried out in various modes such as PPP, DBOT, TOT, HAM and Swiss Challenge and require legal experts to provide advice ranging from Legal Due Diligence to structuring a PPP project. However, it is saddening to note that most law schools do not even explain basic terminologies such as Request for Proposal (RFP) during the course of the degree. It is, of course, natural that student academia focused on other topics and left this niche area of law in the lurch.
