Heuristica Sponsors the Laskin Moot Court Competition

Once again Heuristica is pleased to sponsor the Laskin, Canada’s only annual national bilingual moot court competition.

 

The Laskin provides a unique opportunity for law students, judges, law professors and practitioners from across Canada to meet and debate problems of current importance in the law.

 

Every year, the Laskin has featured a problem that is concerned with issues of national interest and social importance.  Subjects addressed in past years include discrimination against women, the rights of First Nations peoples, language rights, globalisation, freedom of expression, and the legal implications of cutting-edge technology.

 

The competition’s goals are to foster a better and deeper understanding of the law and to support and encourage legal education and bilingualism while at the same time promoting in the legal community a spirit of cooperation and understanding that transcends linguistic and provincial boundaries.… Read More
