SELJ Executive Board Members Win National Competitions

March 11, 2010

In January 2010, members of SELJ’s Executive Board have competed in and won national moot court and legal writing competitions. These two competitions are among the very few opportunities of this kind, in these fields, and members of the Sports and Entertainment Law Journal are the national champions. The accomplishments are detailed below.

SELJ’s Senior Article’s Editor, Matthew Hofmeister, won the 12th Annual Entertainment Law Initiative Writing Competition. His paper, titled, “The RIAA and Online Piracy: Why Bundling Access to Digital Music with Other Products and Services Would Give the Industry Greater Control Over Downloading” topped those of many other competitors, including students from Harvard Law School. In addition to the honor of winning this competition, his paper will be published and he was the guest of honor at the Grammy luncheon in LA.

Scott Neckers, SELJ’s Editor-in-Chief, and Thomas Loegering, SELJ’s former Managing Editor, competed in and won the third annual Tulane University Baseball Arbitration Competition, at Tulane University Law School in New Orleans, LA on January 23-24. The competition involved 4 written briefs based on the criteria for salary arbitration laid out in the Major League Baseball Collecting Bargaining Agreement, and 4 rounds of oral argument in front of lawyers familiar with baseball salary arbitration, including a leading authority on sports and labor law who is an actual MLB arbitrator. En route to the winning the championship, Neckers and Loegering beat teams from Duke, South Texas, Ave Maria, and Notre Dame. The team competed in the first two rounds on Saturday, representing the interests of one baseball club and one player at simulated salary arbitration hearings. After receiving the highest total score during the first two rounds among the 38 teams in the competition, Neckers and Loegering moved onto the semi-finals on Sunday morning, where they again bested their competition and moved onto the final round against Notre Dame. Even without much time to prepare in between the semi-finals and finals, the team won the final round in convincing fashion and took home the title.

Article and Video of Brazil’s “Father of Environmental Courts”

February 25, 2010

DENVER — Vladimir Passos de Freitas, former federal judge and president of the Court of Appeal of the 4th Region in Brazil, says that his country “has a lot of interest in protecting the environment.” That interest is reflected in part, Judge de Freitas says, by Brazil’s widely-used and highly successful system of federal environmental courts.

Judge de Freitas, who spoke to University of Denver Sturm College of Law Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy graduate program (ENRLGP) students, said that environmental courts in Brazil “are now more strict and severe in these cases” than they ever have been in the country’s history.

Brazil is rapidly becoming one of the world’s most important engines of economic growth. The fifth largest country by geography and population, Brazil has the world’s 10th largest economy.

Judge de Freitas, while serving as president of the Court of Appeal of the 4th Region in Brazil, was instrumental in setting up environmental courts in Brazil’s three southernmost states. Professor George (Rock) Pring, a DU professor, described Judge de Freitas as “the father of Brazilian environment law.”

Don C. Smith, director of the ENRLGP, said, “It was an honor for the law school to host such an esteemed guest and environmental law leader. Judge de Freitas’ career has been one devoted to the people of Brazil and more broadly the world. The judge said several years ago, ‘We all have the ethical duty of taking care of the environmental preservation for the present and future generations.’ His life and career are an inspiration to all who meet him.”

Smith continued, “Students in the ENRLGP have opportunities to meet environmental leaders such as Judge de Freitas as well as take courses from international renowned professors like Prof. Rock Pring.”
