Inter-American Sustainable Development Law Moot Court Competition
Tulane University Law School is pleased to host this year's Inter-American Sustainable Development Law Moot Court Competition. For the first time in New Orleans, Louisiana, teams from all over the Americas will converge to participate in a unique moot court opportunity: a competition in which students from different countries argue in English, Spanish, or Portuguese, with simultaneous translation services provided. Tulane University Law School, the Tulane Payson Center, and our partner schools, FGV Direito Rio and the Universidad de los Andes, are proud to host this annual event as a contribution to the growth of opportunities for students to learn courtroom skills in the Americas and to strengthen relationships between the United States and its neighbors.
In this edition, the case will focus on the development and hydraulic fracturing of rural areas and will involve issues of environmental, labor, and human rights law.
