Both Sides Know: Competing in Davies Moot an exceptional exercise in dynamic litigation training

April 22, 2022 — 
Beyond tackling an advanced transaction in corporate law that not even lawyers five-years out encounter, law students competing in the Davies Corporate/Securities Moot need to come prepared to argue both sides of the problem. As a testament to the dynamic brilliance and professionalism of this year’s team from Robson Hall, Brandon Gray (2L), who tied for second-place Top Oralist, immediately expressed appreciation for his teammates and coaches for their contributions and assistance during the competition.

Achieving reconciliation: Kawaskimhon Moot trains law students to advocate for Indigenous rights

April 8, 2022 — 
The Kawaskimhon Moot (Kawaskimhon being a word of Cree origin that translates as “speaking with knowledge”) incorporates Indigenous legal traditions with federal, provincial and international law. With no winners or losers, mooters take part in roundtable negotiations on a particular topic, representing their assigned party. Team Manitoba was very pleased with their negotiation outcome. “After over 12 hours at the negotiation table, my teammate Katie and I were able to come to a memorandum of agreement with the other parties in the spirit of reconciliation,” said Hasenack. “This experience also allowed us to connect with like-minded law students from across Canada, who share a passion for Indigenous rights.”
