University of Manitoba law students head to The Hague for Inter-University Law Debate Tournament Finals

Not able to get enough of arguing with people during regular moot competition season, three intrepid law students: Liam Brown (1L), Diana Gutierrez (2L), and Stefan Leicht (1L), took the initiative to sign themselves up for The Hague Inter-University Law Debate Tournament 2023. After initially defeating the University of Melbourne team, they won against the French University of Armenia team in the Quarter-finals, and competed against Colombia in the Semi-finals on the Victoria Day weekend. They now face the University of Western Ontario in a competition for third place on Tuesday, May 30 in The Hague.

When Dean Richard Jochelson got wind of what the Manitoba team was doing, he offered support from the Faculty of Law. Now, because the team has advanced this far, they have guaranteed the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Law an official spot in the tournament for 2024.

The final stages take place in The Hague and are organized in cooperation with both the United Nations Institute of Training and Research and the Oxford University Press (OUP).
