International Environmental Moot Court Team – 3d Best Memorial

The International Environmental Law Moot Court team was honored for the third best memorial in the recent Pacific Regional competition held on January 29-30th, 2010 at Chapman University School of Law in Orange California.  This year’s competition problem involved marine mammals and ocean noise.

Team member Laura Allen ʻ11 reported that the team made a strong showing against finalist University of California at Hastings. Team member Amy Brinker ʻ11 added, “We had two close rounds, and a tough final round against Hastings, which our UH team won.  The UH brief was less than one point behind the second place brief (Hastings, again).  The competition host said it was one of the closest competitions she’d seen.”

Congratulations to the team on all of their accomplishments, and many thanks to their coaches, friends, families, and colleagues — and the many faculty and Honolulu practitioners — who supported them throughout their intense preparation and practice schedule.
