Foundation of MELS
Myanmar Environmental Legal Services (MELS) was initiated and founded by a public interest environmental lawyer who have been providing environmental legal aid for more than three years as Bertha Justice Fellows and staff of Earth Rights International. The establishment of MELS is counseled by the Vermont Law School and the Asian Research Institute for Environmental Law with support and assistance from relevant environmental public welfare organizations.
