1st Khaitan & Co-IJPIEL Blog-Writing Competition


1st Khaitan & Co-IJPIEL Blog-Writing Competition

About Us

The Indian Journal of Projects, Infrastructure, and Energy Law (IJPIEL), founded in July 2020, is a Student-run biannual Law Journal, Blog, and Podcast.

IJPIEL 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). 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. The youth of today shall be the future of tomorrow, and it is saddening to see that even the crème-de-la-crème of Law Schools in India are not focusing upon this particular area of law. Crucial terms such as Public-Private Partnerships and Procurement (and the different steps and documents involved in the same) remain unknown to Law students throughout the course of their studies. It is, but natural that journals and student academia have not focused upon this area of law. This is where IJPIEL steps in.

We wish to create an academic culture where people develop an interest in this subject and hopefully pursue it as a career. Although our primary focus shall remain on Articles and Blogs pertaining to India, the Journal prides itself on its global outlook and its diverse Board of Advisors.


IJPIEL happens to be one of the first Blog and Journal in India that is solely dedicated to the field of PIE Laws. Our constant attempt is to increase awareness about this unique arc of Law amongst budding Lawyers and young Professionals, and what better way to adopt than involving our audience into the whole process?

This blog-writing competition is our small collaborative attempt at encouraging a greater number of students to explore this arc of Law and expand its scope.
