Pace Law School has been notified that its National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition will receive the highly-coveted American Bar Association Award for Distinguished Achievement in Environmental Law and Policy (organization) award. In addition, Pace Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence Leslie Carothers will receive this year’s ABA Award for Distinguished Achievement in Environmental Law and Policy (individual). The ABA website has more on these two prestigious awards, which will be presented at the ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco in August.
Professor Jeffrey Miller and Senior Environmental Law Program Coordinator Leslie Crincoli will attend the ceremony to receive the organizational Distinguished Achievement award. Professor Miller helped launch the moot court competition 25 years ago, and has written most of the thorny problems the competitors have argued over the years. Ms. Crincoli has managed the massive logistics for this large national competition with a series of Pace student environmental moot court boards for the past 11 years.
Pace Law also congratulates its esteemed colleague, Scholar-in-Residence Leslie Carothers, for her many accomplishments in environmental law and policy that have merited national recognition in the individual Distinguished Achievement award. Professor Carothers taught a popular research seminar at Pace on current challenges in environmental law and law reform. She is the immediate past president of the Environmental Law Institute in Washington, D.C.
