The Moot Court Society (“MCS”) of Pravin Gandhi College of Law (“PGCL”) organized a National Symposium for the 9th National Legal Drafting Competition – Conficiendis Legislativa.


The Legislative Drafting Competition (“LDC”) is a platform where students pan India get an opportunity to draft a bill and experience the nuances borne by the legislature. Drafting being one of the most crucial aspects holds the cardinal and essence in a lawyer’s journey. Thus the LDC promotes and encourages students to enhance their drafting skills.


The theme for the LDC 2020 was “Regulation of Marine Pollution”.


The competition’s brochure was launched in the month of March 2020 however due to the pandemic the declaration of results & Symposium got delayed. We had received participation from 10 colleges and the National Symposium was attended by students, Professors and others pan India. The Draft Bills were assessed by professionals from various walks of life - Mrs. Reena Agarwal, Dr. Vasundhara Mohan and Adv. Asim Vidyarthi.


The Symposium began at 01:00 PM with our Keynote Speaker being Hon’ble Justice K. Ramakrishnan (Judicial Member - National Green Tribunal) and our Speaker Shri G. Rambabu (Scientist-D – Central Pollution Control Board). The Keynote address was delivered on the topic “Legal Aspect of Marine Pollution” and Shri Rambabu gave us insights on “Status of contaminated sites in India”. Both were highly informative and intellectual which gave all our attendees a rich knowledge about marine pollution.
