WVU moot court contest to tackle power plant case

MORGANTOWN (AP) — Law students will tackle power plant issues at the annual National Energy & Sustainability Moot Court Competition in Morgantown.

The three-day competition starts Thursday at West Virginia University’s Erickson Alumni Center. The competition is being hosted by the WVU College of Law.

Twenty-four teams from across the country are competing.

This year, students will sharpen their skills on legal problems faced by a fictitious state and a company that owns a thermal power plant and a hydropower facility. The case was developed by James Van Nostrand, director of the school’s Center for Energy and Sustainable Development; energy and environmental law and police fellow Beren Argetsinger, and WVU law student Joshua Cottle.
