Gale Cup Moot

In 2011 Lenczner Slaght and the Canadian Bar Association (CBA) announced a five-year commitment to sponsor the Gale Cup Moot, one of Canada's most prestigious bilingual law-school mooting competitions.

Now renamed the Lenczner Slaght/CBA Gale Cup Moot, the event was founded in 1974 to give top law students from across the country the opportunity to argue a constitutional law case – an appeal from the Supreme Court of Canada – before panels comprised of distinguished members of the Canadian judiciary.  Participating students are permitted to moot in either English or French, with simultaneous translation provided for oral arguments.

One of Canada's premier litigation events, the Gale Cup Moot, in promoting the development of young advocates, reflects the same commitment to fostering excellence that defines professional development at Lenczner Slaght.
