A three-student team from the University of California’s Boalt Hall School of Law came home winners from the 13th annual National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition at Pace Law School in White Plains, N.Y., recently. “It really is the only national event for environmental moot courts,” said third-year student Jeffrey Brax. “So it was really prestigious for Boalt as a school, for us as students and especially for the environmental program.” Brax made up the team with fellow third-year student Patrick Doherty and second-year Edward Balsamo. All are members of Boalt’s Ecology Law Quarterly. The trio went head to head against teams from law schools with some of the best environmental programs in the country — including Lewis and Clark College’s Northwestern School of Law and The University of Michigan Law School. Lewis & Clark’s program is ranked as the second-best in the country by U.S. News & World Report, with Michigan’s coming in at 18. Berkeley’s program is ranked seventh. The teams were scored on briefs submitted in December in addition to their oral arguments. The top 36 scoring teams advanced to the quarter-finals with the nine highest moving on to the semis. The final three argued before U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Fortunato Benavides, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Judge Scott Fulton, and Renato Martins Mimessi, chief justice of the Radonia Court of Appeals in Brazil.
