Gale Cup Moot

Lenczner Slaght and the Criminal Lawyers’ Association (“CLA”) are pleased to announce that the CLA will be the new co-sponsor of the Gale Cup, replacing the Canadian Bar Association. 

The CLA is Canada’s largest criminal law specialty association and a leading voice for criminal justice and civil liberties in Canada.

The Lenczner Slaght/CLA Gale Cup Moot 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.
