Law forms our society and controls every single feature in our lives. It characterizes our responsibilities, and also serves to legalize and identify relationships and gives us means of equalize when problems arises. To study law in a subject like Tourism means making the most significant contribution towards society, as tourism and law are both related to society and serve them. In this era, we are observing the negative shades of tourism on the society. It is much more needed to be focused on the courses like Tourism Law.

The fundamental principles, theories, approaches, practices and key ideas of this particular course must be designed with the guidance of experts from various fields. There is no doubt that tourism industry in India has immense potential, but still, it is one of the most unorganized sectors of our country. The unemployment ratio of our country can be reduced to some extent by enhancing the tourism sector. It is one of the largest industries to generate employability in India. But the question is – on which cost we develop Tourism in our Country? The negative impacts are visible on society, heritage, culture, wildlife and on the environment.

The tourism law degree must provide students a theoretical, philosophical and practical foundation in legalization

The tourism industry enhanced the extensive usages of natural resources, more consumption of water and energy, thrashing the belief system, ruining traditions, increasing prostitution in other words sex tourism, cutting down the forest, and many more. They are the common negative outcomes of the tourism industry. In fact, sometimes it is like we are neglecting our people “Domestic Tourist” to attract the International Tourists. Hence, it is essential to efficiently and effectively formulate and implement the tourism policy. For the strict implementation of the formulated policy, we need to teach law in Hospitality, Travel and Tourism studies to our youngsters.

Tourism Law is not only a subject to study, but it is guidelines of the rules, principles, and policies that strengthen society. The tourism law degree must provide students a theoretical, philosophical and practical foundation in legalization. In this century we need to provide the students a degree which not only let them know about the know-how about the subject but makes them understand why and how they could be innovative and more effective in their specializations. Tourism industry affects Regional, State, National and Global employment. There is an immeasurable untapped possibility of the course on Tourism Laws in our country.
