Environmental Moot Court

The Pace Environmental Law Moot Court Competition is the preeminent environmental law moot in the United States, attracting competitors representing more than 70 national and Canadian law schools. Participants write and debate about an environmental topic that involves issues drawn from real cases. The competition is unique in that three teams argue the issues, reflecting the fact that environmental litigation frequently involves multiple parties ‒ the government, a public interest group and a member of the regulated community. Teams write and file their briefs for their respective parties in early December and travel to Pace in White Plains, NY in February for the oral phase of the competition.
