Nuclear Law Association

Nuclear Law Association (NLA) has been established in  2011 at New Delhi, India. The Association is a forum for the legal community to discuss issues relating to peaceful use of nuclear energy in India. NLA aims to promote knowledge sharing and influence policy formulation through seminars, research and outreach. Read more about NLA's objectives. 

NLA is conceived as a think-tank and aims to be a center of excellence in nuclear energy law research. Professionals and students with interest in nuclear energy law and policy both from India and abroad may get involved with NLA.
