This program is sponsored by  ABA SEER, the Section's Committees on Superfund & Natural Resources Damages Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution, and the Environmental Law Institute


With the costs of remediating hazardous waste sites soaring into the Billions, effectively advocating on behalf of clients during allocation processes has become a daunting challenge. The enhanced financial stakes, increased incentives to litigate, and the shear magnitude of the effort combine to strain the sanity of both client & counsel. This presentation, provided by highly experienced Superfund counsel who have survived the Superfund allocation gauntlet will provide participants with the perspective and approaches to effectively represent clients and reach equitable settlement through allocation.

Speakers:
David C. Batson, Allocation Specialist, AlterEcho, Washington, DC (moderator)
Nicholas van Aelstyn, Sheppard Mullin, San Francisco, CA
William H. Hyatt, K&L Gates, Newark, NJ
Aselda Thompson, Shell Corporation, Houston, TX

Advancing brief writing and oral advocacy skills in environmental law for an extraordinary educational opportunity

 

Outstanding Reputation. Instituted in 1989, The Jeffrey G. Miller National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition (NELMCC) is the largest interschool moot court competition of any kind under one roof, regularly attracting 200 competitors from law schools from all over the nation. Highly competitive with tremendous educational value, NELMCC has established a national standard of excellence in moot court competitions.

Exceptional Learning Experience. NELMCC provides an intellectual workout for competitors through complex legal analysis of today’s thorny environmental issues presented in the Problem. Competitors research and analyze the issues before writing persuasive arguments for one party advocating how the issues should be resolved. Competitors are then required to argue the issues orally for all three parties, rounding out the rigorous academic experience.

National Prominence. NELMCC is the centerpiece of the Elisabeth Haub School of Law (formerly Pace Law School) Environmental Law Program, ranked third in environmental law nationally by US News and World Report.

ABA SEER Award Winner. NELMCC is the recipient of the 2013 ABA SEER's Distinguished Achievement in Environmental Law and Policy Award for its broad national reach in engaging environmental law students on appellate brief writing and advocacy and commitment from environmental practitioners and the judiciary who judge and critique the competitors.

Splendid Location. The beautiful campus of Elisabeth Haub School of Law is located only 20 miles north of New York City with convenient access to the city and major airports.
