We are elated to announce the first edition of the Justice M.L. Pendse National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition 2023, organized by Maharashtra National Law University Mumbai and Justice M. L. Pendse Chair in Environmental Law.


Maharashtra National Law University Mumbai, established in 2014, is one of India’s premier National Law Universities. MNLU Mumbai was established with a commitment to foster an

environment of excellence in research, scholarship, education, and justice.


Due to an observable lack of legal academia dedicated to Environmental Law in India, the Justice M. L. Pendse Chair in Environmental Law aims to foster legal environmental education by promoting and undertaking research activities exclusively in the field, in collaboration with national and international stakeholders.
