The Allegheny Front, a radio program covering environmental issues in Western Pennsylvania and broadcast on WESA radio (90.5 FM), will feature an interview tomorrow, Saturday, April 13, from 7:30 - 8:00 a.m. featuring University of Pittsburgh School of Law student Kate Langford. 

Langford will discuss her experience with the 2013 Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, an annual event sponsored by the International Law Student Association, which involves a dispute on matters involving public international law. Each of the participating law school teams must write a legal brief—known as a memorial—for both hypothetical nations or international organizations whose dispute is before the International Court of Justice. The teams must be prepared to argue both sides of the dispute in competitions against other teams. 

Langford will describe her team’s approach to tackling the Jessup Problem, which this year focused on the factual and legal consequences of climate change on statehood, migration, and sovereign lending, using actual contemporary environmental issues.
