Solomon Greenberg Trial Moot Launches Law Faculty Moot Season

November 9, 2018 — 

The Solomon Greenberg Trial Moot Competition has a long and illustrious tradition at Robson Hall. Over its 50 year history, winners have included students who have gone on to become Court of Queen’s Bench Judges, Ministers of Justice and even a former Robson Hall Dean of Law, the current Chancellor of the University of Manitoba, Mr. Harvey Sector.

Congratulations to this year’s winners of the Solomon Greenberg Moot, which took place on November 3, 2018 at the Law Courts.

Winner: Arian Poushangi
Runner-up: Alexandra Derwin

Poushangi and Derwin will compete at  the Western Canada Trial Moot (MacIntyre Cup) in February, 2019.   Thank you to the dedicated  judges, coaches, faculty and staff for their help in supporting this event. The organizers at Robson Hall most appreciate the assistance of Ms. Judy Kliewer (General Counsel, Public Prosecution Service of Canada), The Honourable Judge Timothy J. P. Killeen (Provincial Court of Manitoba), [LL.B./79] and The Honourable Judge Raymond E. Wyant (Senior Judge of the Provincial Court of Manitoba), [LL.B./77] who presided over the  two trials.

This event would not be possible without student volunteers who served as jury members, witnesses and court clerks.  They give up valuable study time to assist with this Moot each year.
