    Moot Court

The Environmental Moot Court program introduces students to the art of appellate advocacy by focusing on current issues in environmental law. Students research two areas of environmental law. They write a summary judgment motion in the fall, followed by the appellate brief, which is rewritten over the course of several months and due in March. Students do one argument in the fall. In the spring, after practice rounds and orals coaching on substantive and stylistic aspects of their presentation, students present a final oral argument, judged by a practicing environmental attorney.

The court consists of second-year students. 3L Student Director(s) and the Attorney Advisor, who practices in environmental law, review 2Ls’ written and oral work.
