02.28.24 — The Northeastern Law team of Anjika Pai ’25 and Marcus Bockhorst ’25 advanced to the semi-final round of the Jeffrey G. Miller National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition (NELMCC), held at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University on February 22-24. The NELMCC is one of the nation’s largest interschool moot court competitions. More than 200 competitors and 150 attorneys participate in grading briefs and serving as judges for the annual three-day competition. The Northeastern Law team was also awarded the best runner-up brief and Pai was commended as the best oralist in her preliminary round.

“This was a truly impressive showing for a very hardworking and talented team,” said Professor Wendy Parmet, who coached the team.

“It was a joy to learn appellate argument skills while engaging in relevant energy issues at this year’s NELMCC. The Northeastern faculty’s support was invaluable in helping Marcus and I feel prepared to handle questions on statutory interpretation and environmental mitigation methods,” said Pai.

“Participating in NELMCC was an incredibly rewarding experience that pushed me to grow. I am grateful for the guidance and support of our coach, Professor Parmet, whose expertise and encouragement were invaluable throughout this journey,” said Brockhorst.
