Third-year students Charles Miller, Margot Blaire Woolverton, and Amanda West recently competed in the country’s most prestigious environmental law moot court competition—The Jeffrey G. Miller National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition (NELMCC)—hosted virtually by the Elizabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University in New York. This year, fifty-two teams competed, making it one of the largest interschool moot court competitions in the nation.

The Alabama Law team, coached by Professors Heather Elliott and Bill Andreen, advanced to the semifinals and won Best Brief in their category— earning a second-place finish in the overall Best Brief.

The team’s success would not have been possible without the help of Amethyst Muncy (second-year student and coach), Wendy Cox (program assistant), and many others who helped the team prepare for the competition this year.
