2012 National Environmental Moot Court Champions Advance to the Finals
Students Marla Nelson (3L), Meredith Price (2L), and Daniel Timmons (3L) carried Lewis & Clark to the finals of the National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition where they came in second. This marks the 14th time we have made the finals in this national competition, having won the competition seven times. En route to the finals, the team competed and won against many schools, including Columbia, Wisconsin, Maryland, George Washington, and Florida State.
Coached by Professors Allison LaPlante, Dan Mensher, and Craig Johnston, the team also got support from other faculty and from alumni who volunteered to judge the dozens of practice rounds the team held to prepare for the competition. Cheered on by their classmates, professors, family and friends, it was another top flight Lewis & Clark environmental law moot court team.
Here’s a brief snapshot of Lewis & Clark’s accomplishments in the national competition. Over the past 20 years, Lewis & Clark teams have:
* Advanced to the quarterfinals (top 27 teams) 16 times
* Advanced to the semifinals (top 9 teams) 14 times
* Advanced to the finals (top 3 teams) 14 times
* Won seven national championships
The Environmental and Natural Resources Law Program is located in Wood Hall on the Law Campus.
