The Mini Moot is intended to be a fun, challenging, and fail-safe opportunity for students to develop practical skills by researching case law, writing arguments, and speaking publicly. All Robson Hall Law students and Master of Human Rights students are welcome to participate.
The case to be argued this year is the recent 2018 Supreme Court of Canada decision, Law Society of British Columbia v Trinity Western University (2018 SCC 32). This case is an appeal by the LSBC seeking to justify its decision to not approve TWU’s proposed law school. The Charter rights engaged are s. 2(a) freedom of religion and s. 15 freedom from discrimination.
Please attend the information session on Wednesday February 10th from 12:00pm-1:00pm, where the CEC will provide insight on how to prepare and deliver an argument, and answer any questions that you might have. A video example of previous years’ winners will also be shown. This session will be intended for first years, but everyone is welcome. The Zoom link will be sent to all registered Mini Moot participants.
