Moot season at Robson Hall kicked off on the Saturday of Grey Cup weekend (November 19) with the first in-person Solomon Greenberg Trial Moot Competition in two years.

A long and illustrious tradition at the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Law, the Solomon Greenberg has a 50-plus year history, with winners including students who have gone on to become Court of Queen’s Bench Judges, Ministers of Justice and even former Dean of Law, and Chancellor of the University of Manitoba – in the example of Harvey Sector, C.M., O.M. [BComm/1967, LLB/1992, LLD/2022].

Winners of this intramural advocacy competition will go on to represent UM Law at the MacIntyre (Western) Cup, the finalists of which then proceed to the national trial moot, the Sopinka Cup.

They were chosen by competition judges David Ireland (Associate Professor and Director of Clinics, UM Law), Chantal Boutin (Manitoba Justice), The Honourable Raymond Wyant (Provincial Court of Manitoba) and the Honourable Tim Killeen (Provincial Court of Manitoba).
