Welcome - Willms & Shier Environmental Law Moot LAWS 2250   Willms & Shier Environmental Law Moot
The Willms & Shier Environmental Law Moot is a national mooting competition, focused on current issues in environmental law, sponsored by the law firm of Willms & Shier and Osgoode Hall Law School. The moot is held biennially in Toronto, in the winter term. Mooters prepare a written factum for one side of a case on appeal, and make oral arguments on both sides of the issues before panels of judges and specialist practitioners. The course is open to second and third-year students, with either two or four students (in two-student teams). A minimum of two students is required. Selection will be conducted through written applications, and may include a brief oral exercise. Criteria include academic ability, advocacy skills and interest in the subject area. Please note that students may participate in only one competitive moot during their degree program.
NOTES: Assessment Method: Evaluation: Research, Factum preparation and oral Advocacy. Students may count this course as their major paper requirement, if they wish to do so.
