The Stegner Center is very proud of the student teams that represented the S. J. Quinney College of Law at the National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition at Pace Law School in New York and the National Energy and Sustainability Moot Court Competition at West Virginia University (WVU) College of Law.
Kayla Race, Gordon Rowe and Sydney Sell represented the Stegner Center at the National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition at Pace Law School. The Pace team was coached by University of Utah alumni Ben Machlis and Ashley Walker, both who are currently practicing environmental law at Dorsey and Whitney. The team won Best Brief for the party they briefed and advanced out of the preliminary rounds, with Sydney Sell being named as best oralist for the round. The team narrowly lost in a competitive quarterfinal round to the eventual competition winner.
Nate Broadhurst and Alex Vandiver coached by University of Utah alumnus Nate Mitchell, who is an Associate at Snow Christensen & Martineau, represented the Stegner Center at the National Energy and Sustainability Moot Court Competition at West Virginia University College of Law. Alex and Nate excelled during the four preliminary rounds and qualified for the elimination rounds, where they won the first elimination round and advanced to the quarterfinals.
