The Record and Rules for the 26th Annual Stetson International Environmental Moot Court Competition (IEMCC) have been released and are now available on the IEMCC website.

The theme for this year’s problem is “Protected Areas and Armed Conflict.”

The global, multi-part contest gives students around the world an opportunity to learn more about and advocate for environmental issues impacting the planet. Teams compete in national and regional rounds throughout the world, and the top teams are invited to participate in the International Finals.

The International Finals are planned for April 7-9, 2022, at Stetson University College of Law’s campus in Gulfport, Florida. Last year’s competition was held virtually because of the pandemic. Law Society of Ireland was named winner in that contest, and Symbiosis Law School, Pune, India, was runner-up.

Additional information about national and regional rounds will be posted on the IEMCC website as it becomes available.
