Call for Energy Moot Court Judges

Volunteer judges are needed for the National Energy and Sustainability Moot Court Competition, which will be hosted by the West Virginia University College of Law on March 16-18 in Morgantown, WV. In its seventh year, the competition attracts exceptional law students from across the country.

The issue being addressed this year involves an effort by a state to subsidize electricity generators using particular fuel sources (e.g., coal) in order to produce economic benefits for the state, and whether such measures potentially interfere with interstate commerce or federal regulation of electricity prices.

A judge must be an attorney of good standing licensed to practice law in any state. For the final round (afternoon of March 18), judges must be a federal or state appellate judge.

Interested parties should contact Samantha Stefanov at wvumoot@mail.wvu.edu for more details. Please put MOOT COURT JUDGE in the subject line.
