Instituted in 1989, the Jeffrey G. Miller National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition (NELMCC) is the largest interschool moot court competition of any kind under one roof, regularly attracting 200 competitors from law schools from all over the nation. Highly competitive with tremendous educational value, NELMCC has established a national standard of excellence in moot court competitions. The competition is named after Professor Emeritus Jeffrey G. Miller, who retired from the Pace Law environmental faculty in 2013.
NELMCC is the centerpiece of the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University Environmental Law Program, currently ranked first in environmental law nationally by US News and World Report.
Links to the problems and best briefs, beginning with the first competition in 1989, are collected below. Information on previous competitions beginning with 2003, including lists of winners, finalists, and videos of the final round, is here.
