About the organisation
Law League is an initiative of the students of Maharashtra National Law University, Mumbai.
Law League seeks to remove the ‘law school handicap’ by allowing an equal and even playing field to students across the country by encouraging their participation in their collaborative events and research projects
Law League is starting its own non-profit social initiative and shall be conducting research projects focusing on different social issues existing in India.
“Pragyaan” is a social initiative undertaken by Law League India. Law League India is motivated to encourage students to undertake research on existing lacunas in society. It is our belief that any potential change in society can be triggered by the actions of law students and legal personnel.
This vision of pooling together public-spirited individuals is manifested in the form of ‘Pragyaan’ under which we shall be addressing various social issues that affect our country.
