The annual International Environmental Moot Court Competition (IEMCC) held at Stetson University near Tampa, Florida, is the most prestigious international environmental law moot court competition in the world. Soongsil University is Stetson's new partner in bringing the prestigious IEMCC to East Asia.
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 trans-boundary pollution and the preservation of endangered species. The IEMCC provides an excellent educational opportunity. Students will 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 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 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.
Stetson and Soongsil Universities are delighted to announce their new partnership to bring the Stetson IEMCC closer to East Asia. Soongsil University has agreed to host the inaugural East Asia Regional in Seoul, Korea. The East Asia Regional Rounds will be held from 27 November to 1 December 2012.
Teams from China, Guam, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Macao, Mongolia, Saipan, Taiwan are required to participate in this regional prior to reaching the international finals at Stetson in March 2013. (These countries are labelled green on the map.)
Additionally, teams from South East Asia and other areas near East Asia are invited to compete at this competition in Seoul. (These countries are labelled blue on the map.)
