What is The EARR

    Stetson and Soongsil Universities are delighted to announce their continuous partnership to bring the Stetson IEMCC closer to East Asia. Soongsil University's College of Law will host the 2nd East Asia Regional in Seoul, Korea. The East Asia Regional Rounds will be held from 25 November to 29 November, 2013. The top teams will then be invited to the International Finals.

    Teams from China(Mainland, Macao, Hong Kong and Taiwan), Guam, Japan, Mongolia, Saipan and Korea are required to participate in this regional prior to reaching the international finals at Stetson in April 16 -18, 2015.

    Teams from other countries near East Asia and beyond are also invited to compete at this competition in Seoul if no local regional is available for their home area.

    Teams that hail from the countries of ASEAN(Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam) are required to first coordinate their IEMCC participation with the South East Asia Regional Rounds and Stetson University.


What is The IEMCC

    The International Environmental Moot Court Competition (IEMCC) is the most prestigious international environmental law moot court competition in the world. It convenes annually at Stetson University near Tampa, Florida. Soongsil University's College of Law is Stetson's new partner in bringing the prestigious IEMCC to East Asia.


    The IEMCC provides an excellent educational opportunity. Every year the IEMCC raises exciting international environmental law issues, bringing awareness and educational opportunities to law students around the world. This year's competition focuses on sustainable development and the ecology of sea turtles. Students have the opportunity to perform legal research in international law, to write formal legal memorials, and to present adversarial oral arguments in competition.

    Stetson and Soongsil are united in their hopes to improve access to learning and moot experiences by bringing the IEMCC to Seoul. They hope this new location in the heart of East Asia will make travel and other costs more affordable for students from East Asia. Soongsil and Stetson hope that by bringing students from all over East Asia together to discuss these important environmental legal issues that a partnership can be built for a future greener East Asia.

    Soongsil University's College of Law is also inviting professors of environmental law to come and share their research at a conference held during the East Asia Regional week of competition.
