National Environmental Moot Court Team Competes in New York City

February 28, 2017

Congratulations are in order for the National Environmental Law Moot Court Team – Robby Anderson (‘17), Carrington Jackson (‘17), Katlyn Stricklend  (‘17) and student coach and advisor, Haley Cobb (‘18).

The team performed admirably well at the National Competition, which was held Thursday through Saturday, March 2-4, in New York City.  Sixty-four law schools competed in this year’s event – the nation’s most prestigious Environmental Law moot court and one of the largest, if not the largest, held under one roof.

The UA Law team faced teams from Berkeley, UC Davis, Columbia, Wisconsin, New Mexico, Baylor, Houston, and William Mitchell and succeeded in advancing to the Quarter-Final Round, with Carrington Jackson winning an award for best advocate.  The competition involved a fiendishly complicated problem involving seven issues and three parties on appeal.

Professor William Andreen said he is so proud of the team.  The members worked extremely hard; were always up-beat and cooperative; and represented UA Law in excellent fashion.  Andreen thanked his co-coach, Professor Heather Elliott, and Dana Waid, who provided support along the way.
