A team from Osgoode Hall Law School placed third in the 2014 Davies Corporate Securities Law Moot, which was held at the Federal Court in Toronto on March 7 and 8.
The team comprised of students Nicolas Francis, Liane Langstaff, Wendy Sun, Douglas Judson and Evan Kenyon received positive feedback and praise from judges, fellow moot competitors and attendees for their written and oral arguments. They were coached by Kate McGrann and Bruce O’Toole of Crawley MacKewn Brush LLP, and David Noseworthy of Wagner Sidlofsky LLP.
This year’s moot problem was concerned with s. 143 of the Canada Business Corporations Act, which deals with shareholders’ rights to requisition meetings of corporations. Teams from the University of Calgary and the University of Toronto finished first and second, respectively, in this year’s moot.
