MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Students from a record 29 law schools are competing March 2-5 in the 12th annual National Energy and Sustainability Moot Court Competition, hosted by the West Virginia University College of Law.
The competition is organized by WVU’s Center for Energy and Sustainable Development for students who want to work in energy and environmental law. It is being held virtually.
This year, 39 teams will grapple with legal issues related to the Clean Air Act and Migratory Bird Treaty Act. The moot court problem involves a fictitious federally owned electric utility company that operates an aging coal-fired power plant and a concentrating solar power facility.
