Law goes Green – 2018

Law goes Green – 2018

Department of Public and International Law of the Faculty of Law is planning to hold the annual environmental law programme named Law Goes Green 2018” in the month of March that  celebrates the passionate activism of students of the law towards building a greener, healthier and safer world for all beings. Law Goes Green in 2018 for the 5th consecutive time aspires to spark interest of university as well as school students and the community as a whole, in environmental threats looming ahead. For this year, we have an interesting lineup of events planned to raise awareness on challenges to environmental protection and the importance of sustainable development. 

Proposed Projects-

 1.      Faculty grounds clean-up, beautification and tree planting campaign.

2.      Inter-faculty green debate competition.

3.      Intra-faculty green drama competition.                                                                                                                               

4.      Intra-faculty nature poetry competition.

5.      Inter-school case study presentation competition.

6.      Implementing a ‘No Polythene’ policy in the submission of assignments.

Launching of a website to promote environmental laws and regulations and to use this website as a platform for the undergraduate and postgraduate students to publish research papers and other publications.    


The ‘Law Goes Green-2018’ (LGG) initiative was conceived with the aspiration of making the Faculty of Law a more environmentally friendly institute of academic excellence. Following advocacy by the Environmental Law students as part of the LGG initiative, the Faculty administration unanimously decided to bring into effect from 26th February 2018 onwards, a Zero-Plastic Assignment Submission Policy.
According to this new policy, all take-home assignments submitted to the Faculty of Law Exam Unit must simply be stapled or taped together, without the use of any plastic binding/plastic sheets/polythene or other similar non-biodegradable material and the submission of assignments with such prohibited material is precluded. This is a step towards a greener tomorrow as this policy will reduce plastic waste created by roughly 10,000 take-home assignments processed by the Faculty per academic year. The LGG initiative hopes to continue on this progressive journey of reducing environmental damage by striving to introduce an online assignment submission system to curb the use of paper at a future date.

The Green Drama Competition is a platform which allows Law students to sharpen their creative skills and portray current and pressing environmental-social issues through the medium of drama. At this competition which is to be held on 14th May 2018 from 12 pm onwards at the NLT building, three best drama from the three media; Sinhala, Tamil and English will be selected. The dramas will be rewarded for the nuanced way in which they capture the essence of various effects of environment-related issues on the contemporary society. This competition will be open to students of all four years.

A tree planting campaign will be held at the Faculty of Law premises on Wednesday, 16th May 2018 under the aegis of Ms.Otara Gunewardene, Founder of Embark and Otara Foundation. Vice-Chancellor, University of Colombo, Prof. Lakshman Dissanayake will grace the occasion as the guest of honour. Under the tagline ‘Robarosiya; It’s Blooming Again’, the Tree Planting Campaign will focus on replanting ‘Robarosiya’ (and a variety of other plants like Esala, Weralu and Magul Karanda donated by the undergraduates themselves) in the Faculty of Law premises, with the view of preserving the legacy of the beloved and age-old ‘Robarosiya’ tree which was heart-wrenchingly uprooted in the recent hurricane. This will be followed by a cleaning up of the Faculty premises. The event will take place from 8.30 am to 12 noon.

The Tree Planting Campaign will be followed by the Final Awarding Ceremony of Law Goes Green on the afternoon of the same day, from 2.00-5.00 pm at the New Arts Theater, University of Colombo, with the participation of the Vice-Chancellor Prof.Lakshaman Dissanayake. The winners of the Inter-school Case study, Debate, Drama and Poetry competitions will be awarded at this event as an encouragement to the students of the law and future lawyers to always remember to go back to nature, treat mother nature with love and respect and use resources sustainably for the benefit of generations yet unborn.

  • I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
