Leicester Canadian Law Mooting Competition 2014/2015

The University of Leicester is pleased to announce the establishment of a new national Canadian law mooting competition, which will run for the first time during the academic year 2014-2015. The competition, which will provide students with an opportunity to research and argue moot problems in Canadian law, is expected to appeal particularly to the many Canadian students studying law in the UK, although it is open to all law students at both undergraduate and LLM/MA level. Institutions or teams of students interested in participating in this competition and those seeking further information are invited to contact the competition convenor Dr Tracey Elliott (email: tracey.elliott@le.ac.uk) for further details.
