West Virginia University College of Law Students Enter the Marcellus Shale Play With National Moot Court Competition
March 6, 2013
The WVU College of Law will tackle hydraulic fracturing issues in the upcoming National Energy & Sustainability Moot Court Competition. On March 14-16, 2013, moot court teams will gather in Morgantown to address issues involving alleged violations of the Clean Air Act and Migratory Bird Treaty by a “mid-Atlantic national gas company” involved in hydraulic fracturing. The sample case was designed to bringpractical compliance and enforcement issues into the classroom and to raise awareness of vital business and environmental issues affecting West Virginia and other gas-rich states. The Competition includes teams from American University, Duquesne, Florida State, Colorado, Maryland, Utah and Wyoming, West Virginia, and others, at WVU’s Erickson Alumni Center.
