The International Environmental Moot Court Competition

Held at Stetson University in Florida during the fall semester, this competition provides an excellent opportunity for law students to explore issues of international environmental law in the context of a dispute before the International Court of Justice. The participants' memorials are evaluated by international environmental legal experts, selected with the assistance of the ABA International Environmental Law Committee, Section of International Law and Practice. Oral arguments are evaluated by local attorneys and judges who have experience in international law, environmental law, and appellate advocacy. The problem is usually released in May and the written memorial is due in early October, with the oral competition to follow a few weeks thereafter. Students will receive 2 credits for their participation in the International Environmental Moot Court Competition in Law 872. Only second-year day and third-year evening students are eligible to apply for this moot.
