25th Stetson International Environmental Law Moot Court Competition
The University of the Philippines Law Center, through the Institute of International Legal Studies, is honored to once again host the Southeast Asian Regional Round (SEARR) of the 25th Stetson International Environmental Law Moot Court Competition.
The Stetson International Environmental Moot Court Competition, which focuses on important global environmental challenges, is the most prestigious international environmental law moot court competition in the world. Since 1996, law students from universities all over the globe have participated in the Stetson Moot Court Competition, considering it an invaluable opportunity to meet and compete with representatives from universities around the world. In order to qualify for the Stetson International Finals, which is usually held in Florida, U.S.A., participants must compete in their respective regional competitions. Southeast Asian countries, in particular, are required to participate in the SEARR of the Stetson International Environmental Moot Court Competition before advancing to the International Finals.
The SEARR will be a week-long event from January 11 to 15, 2021, and will be fully held virtually for the first time. Geared towards building and strengthening relationships between ASEAN law schools and their representatives, the SEARR also ensures that students are provided the opportunity to develop and hone critical skills through rich regional competition.
The UP Law Center’s Institute of International Legal Studies invites everyone to join us as we commence SEARR with the 2nd Southeast Asian Climate Change and Biodiversity Policy Forum which will be streamed on the UP College of Law’s Facebook Page at 9:00 AM on January 11, 2021.
