Dean of Law, Dr. Jonathan Black-Branch, along with the entire faculty and staff at Robson Hall, would like to take this opportunity to proudly congratulate Team Manitoba on their triumph and great success at the 2017 MacIntyre Cup (Western Canada’s Trial Moot Competition).
We wish you continued success at the upcoming Sopinka Cup!
Coaches, the Honourable Justice Richard Saull (Court of Queen’s Bench of Manitoba) and Judy Kliewer (General Counsel, Public Prosecution Service of Canada) are quoted below.
Third year students Agapi Mavridis and Adriel Agpalza were this year’s successful competitors in the Solomon Greenberg moot who were selected to compete in the 2017 MacIntyre Western Canada Trial Cup Moot as Team Manitoba. The competition was held in Edmonton from February 9 to 11th, hosted by the University of Alberta. As coaches, we are extremely proud to announce that Agapi and Adriel won first place, having competed against seven other teams from law schools across Western Canada. Based on the feedback from three esteemed assessors, they evidently won the competition hands down! With this win, Agapi and Adriel have advanced to the national Sopinka Cup Trial Moot which will take place in Ottawa March 16-18. They will compete against the seven other law school teams that have advanced from regional competitions across Canada. We congratulate Agapi and Adriel, whose many long hours honing their talents and developing their skills are paying off. We are confident that they will be the team to contend with at the Sopinka Cup!
Agapi Mavridis commented “we are so thankful for the support of our fellow students in helping us to be prepared by acting as witnesses for us, and really challenging us before we went to Edmonton”.
