Subject: [Envlawprofessors - UOregon] National Energy and Sustainability Moot Court Competition

Dear Colleagues-

Registration for the Seventh Annual National Energy & Sustainability Moot Court Competition, to be held on March 16-18, 2017 in Morgantown, West Virginia is now open at http://energycomp.law.wvu.edu/registration.

Our competition features the following:

  *   Outstanding Judges: Our final round bench last year was composed entirely of judges from the federal bench. Earlier rounds are judged by experienced energy and environmental lawyers practicing in the region.
  *   Geographic Diversity: Our competition has grown from 6 teams in 2011 to 24 teams in 2016, featuring competitors from throughout the country. Past finalists include teams from Washington & Lee, Duquesne, Texas Tech, North Dakota, Pittsburgh, Florida State, Kentucky, LSU and Louisville. Other past participants include teams from George Washington, Maryland, North Carolina, Houston, Colorado, Wyoming, Oklahoma, Utah, American, Catholic, and Pace.
  *   Four Rounds of Preliminary Competition: Our format guarantees that each team will participate in a minimum of four preliminary rounds before the field is narrowed to sixteen teams.
  *   Exceptional Hospitality: In addition to continental breakfast and lunch each day for the participants, we host a reception on Thursday afternoon, a banquet on Friday evening, and a reception following the final round.
  *   Problems Featuring Real World, Current Issues: Our problem each year focuses on current issues facing the energy industry. Past problems have been based on energy and sustainability issues associated with natural gas pipelines, NEPA, and the Endangered Species Act; the scope of EPA jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act; the intersection of the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and common law nuisance claims arising from utility power plants; and shale gas development and the Clean Air Act.
  *   Accessible Location: Our mid-Atlantic location makes it relatively convenient for competitors from throughout the country. Morgantown is within a 500 mile radius of half of the nation's population, and an easy 75-minute drive from Pittsburgh's airport.
  *   Prominent Energy & Sustainable Development Program: The WVU College of Law features extensive course offerings in energy and sustainable development, including the nation's first LL.M. in Energy & Sustainable Development Law. Our experienced faculty of energy, environmental and sustainability scholars produces the problem each year and actively participates in the competition.
 Registration closes on January 5, 2017, and is limited to the first forty teams. Please feel free to contact either me (email: james.vannostrand at mail.wvu.edu<mailto:james.vannostrand at mail.wvu.edu>, phone: 304.293.4694) or Samantha Stefanov, Program Assistant (email: Samantha.stefanov at mail.wvu.edu<mailto:Samantha.stefanov at mail.wvu.edu>, phone 304.293.0064) with any questions.
