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.
Jennifer Bowen, Keslie Cooper and Thomas Kessinger 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 alumnus Ben Machlis, who is currently practicing environmental law at Dorsey and Whitney.
Gordon Rowe and Sydney Sell, coached by University of Utah alumnus Jennifer Horne, who is currently practicing litigation and environmental law at Holland and Hart, represented the Stegner Center at the National Energy and Sustainability Moot Court Competition at West Virginia University College of Law. They were one of just four teams in the competition to advance to the semi-final round, where they narrowly lost to a team from Pace University.
The Stegner Center would not be able to support sending teams to these competitions without the generosity of our donors. The donors include Joe Amadon, ClydeSnow, Jason Groenewold,
Lear & Lear L.L.P., Jim Moore and Kathryn Lindquist, Ben Machlis, Jamie Pluene, Rod Smith, and Peter Webster.
The Stegner Center and the coaches also appreciate the judges who graciously shared their time and expertise to prepare the students for the competition, and the support staff who made all of the arrangements for the competition. They include Associate Dean Lincoln Davies, Professor Robin Craig, Steve Jones, Chris Hogle, Megan Houdeshel, Troy Booher, Murray Feldman, Greg Osborne, Ellie Rudolf, Tim Bagshaw, Chelsea Davis, Robert Denny, Rachel Wertheimer, Ashley Walker, Kate Tipple, Will Hains, James Owen, Ashley Peck, Kylie Cox Orme, and Karen Fuller. (Thanks also to Holland & Hart for lending their great facilities for practice rounds.)
