Environmental Moot Court Team Competes in National Competition; Students Win Three Best Oralist Awards

February 27, 2018

The Law School’s National Environmental Law Moot Court Team – Lauren Bakke, Haley Cobb, Samuel Sun – and student coach and advisor, Sydney Schaefer − performed in masterful fashion at the National Competition, which was held in New York from February 22-24.  Fifty-six law schools participated in this year’s competition – the nation’s most prestigious Environmental Law moot court and one of the largest, if not the largest, held under one roof.

The team faced excellent teams from the University of Virginia, the University of Texas, Penn State, Seattle University, and Rutgers-Camden as they progressed through the preliminary rounds to reach the Quarter-Final round of the competition.  In doing so, the team won the best oralist award in all three preliminary rounds with Cobb snaring two and Sun the other.  The faculty advisors of the team are Professor William Andreen and Professor Heather Elliott.
