Environmental Appellate Advocacy | L47xx
This course is open to students interested in covering advanced topics in environmental law and appellate advocacy. The students who will represent the Sturm College of Law at the National Environmental Moot Court Competition, hosted by Pace Law School, are expected to take this course, although other students may also take the course, particularly those who are interested in participating in the NEMCC in subsequent years. The course will meet 3 times per week in a classroom environment for approximately the first two months of the Spring semester. Topics covered may include, but are not limited to, 1) procedural issues such as intervention, standing, or agency deference; 2) detailed study of substantive environmental law; and 3) oral advocacy skills. Grading will be based on classroom participation, written homework, and simulated oral arguments.
