About This Proceeding
The volume contains selected, peer-reviewed papers from the International Conference on Law, Environment and Society (ICLES 2018), 13-16 November, 2018, Faculty of Law, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), Bangi, Malaysia.
With the current concerns about and emphasis on environmental sustainability in response to the rampant degradation laying waste to the earth, this conference was considered both timely and proactive in foregrounding the legal aspects of the sustainability movement. The 1st International Conference on Law, Environment and Society focused on the theme of “Nature and the Law’ which offered a unique opportunity to researchers, academicians, students and other stakeholders to present and share their research work. This conference offered a venue to establish networks and linkages for future research collaboration with other participants at an international level. This inaugural ICLES 2018 also served as a catalyst to stimulate new ideas and innovate solutions to environmental challenges for a greener future.
A total of 33 poster submissions were accepted and presented at the conference by participants in person from the Philippines, Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan and Malaysia followed by the submission of full written articles. These articles were reviewed by the content experts (double blind peer review) after which the papers were edited for language and mechanics. The final number of submissions received, reviewed and accepted for publication was 32 indicating an acceptance rate of 96%. A total of 35 reviewers were involved in the stringent review process that included plagiarism detection using iThenticate software program.
