Earlier this year, the Osgoode team participated in The Gale Cup, Canada’s premier national, bilingual, constitutional law mooting competition. They took first place, winning them the opportunity to advance to the Commonwealth Moot.
“This is a tremendous accomplishment and we are very proud,” said Osgoode Hall Law School Dean Lorne Sossin. “The Commonwealth Moot promises to be a thrilling event as our students go head-to-head with the best of the best. It’s bound to be a fantastic learning experience.”
With the support of the American College of Trial Lawyers, Canadian Foundation, Lenczner Slaght and Osgoode Hall Law School, the Osgoode team began competition on Sunday, April 14.
