Environmental Law Moot Court Team Success

Congratulations to Loyola University New Orleans College of Law students Caitlin Byars (oralist), Lindsey Crow (oralist/brief writer), Steven Lord (oralist), and Kelly Stein (coach) for their recent successes at the 21st annual Pace Environmental Law Moot Court Competition in White Plains, New York. In a competition with over eighty other teams from across the country, Loyola's Environmental Moot Court team made its mark. Both Caitlin Byars and Lindsey Crow were named best oralists in two of the three preliminary rounds in which the team argued. Additionally, the team brief was chosen as the Best Appellant Brief among all of the competing schools. As a result of Loyola’s success and because the competition is recognized as the "preeminent environmental law moot" in the United States, the Loyola brief will be published in the Pace Environmental Law Journal next fall. Congratulations to the team and coach for an outstanding job.
