Save The Date – World’s First Twitter Moot Court

via West Coast Environmental Law

On Tuesday, February 21st, 2012, at 10am PST (1pm EST), West Coast Environmental Law (West Coast) will be hosting the world’s first ever Moot Court held on the popular social media platform, Twitter.  Three judges and teams from five law schools across Canada will make social media and legal history, participating in a mock appeal of a recent precedent-setting environmental case, with the teams and judges all participating via Twitter.

This event will focus on a recent environmental case, and will bring environmental law issues, West Coast Environmental Law, and the students who participate to the attention of a world-wide audience.

The hashtag for this event (for those on Twitter) is #twtmoot.  Make sure to use it if you tweet about the moot.

On the WCEL website, you can follow updates regarding the judges, the teams and follow the live Twitter Moot Feed, which also has information on viewing the competition. You do not need a Twitter account to follow the action. You can see what’s going on by going directly to the TwtMoot Twitter account.
