Chair & Message

Dear Colleagues

With the current emphasis on environmental sustainability in response to the rampant degradation laying waste to the earth, we firmly believe that this conference is both timely and proactive in foregrounding the legal aspects of the sustainability movement. Hence, it is with great pleasure that we announce the inaugural International Conference on Law, Environment and Society (ICLES2018) with the theme “Nature and the Law”.   The conference provides a unique opportunity for academics, students and practitioners to interact and share knowledge related to how the law can positively impact on the move to save our precious planet. 

This poster conference will take place on 13-15 March 2018 at the Faculty of Law, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi, Selangor.  This poster platform offers the flexibility and convenience valued by busy academics to share their work with a global audience.  The posters will be exhibited at the Faculty during the conference dates and will be available at the University Poster Venue to registered participants to view.

All authors will be offered the opportunity to publish their full text conference papers in the European Proceedings of Social and Behavioural Sciences (EpSBS ISI Thomson Reuters Web of Science indexed) e-ISSN: 2421-826X. Selected papers may be published in the peer reviewed European Journal of Social and Behavioural Sciences (EJSBS) eISSN 2301-2218, Jurnal Undang-undang dan Masyarakat (Journal of Law and Society) ISSN 1394 - 7729 or the Journal of Malaysian and Comparative Law ISSN 0126-6322. Abstracts of all papers will be published in the Conference Abstract Book.

We are also delighted to announce our collaboration with Future Academy, and hope that this collaboration will take both the Faculty and the Academy to new heights of academic excellence and service.

We welcome your interest and participation in the inaugural ICLES International Conference on Law, Environment and Society and look forward to receiving your abstract.
