MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Law students will tackle interstate pipeline issues at the sixth annual National Energy and Sustainability Moot Court Competition in Morgantown.
The three-day competition starts Thursday at West Virginia University’s Erickson Alumni Center. The competition is being hosted by the WVU College of Law.
Twenty-three teams from across the country are competing.
This year, students will sharpen their skills on legal problems faced by an environmental group’s appeal of a federally approved interstate natural gas pipeline. Allegations include violations of environmental and endangered species acts.
The case problem was written by Laura Griffin, a WVU energy and environmental law and policy fellow.
