The Law Society of Upper Canada, in conjunction with Humber College ITAL, is hosting the 2016 Paralegal Cup on November 19 and 20 at Osgoode Hall in Toronto.
The annual Paralegal Cup is the only mooting competition in Ontario that is exclusive to paralegal students, and is open to all students enrolled in a paralegal diploma or certificate program recognized by the Law Society of Upper Canada.
In teams, students will be asked to identify and address the legal issues for both the appellant and respondent in a selected contemporary Canadian case. Advocacy, legal research, and legal writing skills will be tested in ten-minute oral submissions presented before a panel of judges and a written component.
The event also serves as an invaluable opportunity for students to connect with mentors, industry leaders, and future colleagues.
