Environmental Moot Court

Welcome to Washington University School of Law's Environmental Moot Court home page!

On this page, you will find information about Washington University's annual environmental moot court competition. The environmental moot court competition combines the international and political aspects of protecting the environment with the intricacies of administrative and environmental law, the persuasiveness of brief writing, and the oral advocacy skills of a litigator.

In teams of two, participants prepare a brief and make arguments in front of local judges and lawyers in appellate court litigation. The problem involves a complex and interesting legal issue dealing with private or public actions that have failed to take account of costs or harms inflicted on the eco-system.

This competition is open to all 2nd and 3rd year Wash U law students and there are no prerequisites. Professor Michael Koby is the faculty advisor.
