North American (Pacific) Rounds of the International Environmental Moot Court Competition to be Hosted at DU on January 28 and 29

On Friday January 28 and Saturday January 29, the University of Denver Sturm College of Law will host the North American (Pacific) Rounds of the International Environmental Law Moot Court Competition.

The winners of these rounds will go on to compete at the University of Maryland in March against teams from around the world, including teams from Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America.

Now in its 15th year, this is the largest international environmental moot court competition in the world and the College of Law is excited to be hosting these rounds.

Professor Annecoos Wiersema said, "The topic this year is very timely: addressing oil pollution and the marine environment in the context of international law. The event should be an exciting and engaging one."
