Environmental Law Moot Court

Program in Environmental and Energy Law

Each year, Chicago-Kent sends a team of three students to participate in the Pace Law School National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition, which takes place the third week in February. In the preceding August/September, the student team is chosen from interested 2L and 3L (and 4L evening) students. Depending on the amount of student interest, Chicago-Kent's team is chosen through an interview process or through an internal student competition. The students work closely together from early October to early December to write and file a brief for the competition. Oral argument practice begins toward the end of winter break in early or mid-January. Preparing for and participating in the competition is always an extremely valuable and rewarding experience.
