The 27th M. C. Chagla Memorial Government Law College National Online Moot Court Competition, 2020 was held on 31st October & 1st November, 2020. The Moot Court Association of Government Law College has been hosting the M. C. Chagla Memorial Moot Court Competition for several years. It began as a city-level Moot Court Competition, which was later expanded to a state-level competition. Due to the overwhelming response that we have been receiving, the Competition, since its 18th edition, has been raised to a national platform.
The Late Mr. M. C. Chagla was appointed as the First Indian Chief Justice of the Bombay High Court. He also served as the Ambassador to USA, Mexico, Cuba, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bombay, High Commissioner to England and Union Minster for Education. He worked tirelessly for the causes of civil liberty, individual freedom and political democracy and this Moot Court Competition promises to be a fitting tribute to his legacy.
