Robson Hall will be entering two teams into the Western Canada Trial Moot (McIntyre Cup ) which the University of Manitoba Faculty of law will be hosting at the Law Courts here in Winnipeg on February 16th and 17th, 2018.
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] presided over the two trials.
This event would not be possible without student volunteers who serve as jury members, witnesses and court clerks. They give up valuable study time to assist with this Moot.
