About the Moot
The Willms & Shier Environmental Law Moot is Canada's first and only national moot court competition devoted to environmental law.
Its goal is to promote awareness of the growing role of environmental issues in contemporary legal practice and public life, while enhancing law students' written and oral advocacy skills.
The competition takes the form of an appeal before a Canadian court of last resort, bringing together law students, judges, leadings lawyers and legal academics to explore cutting-edge environmental law issues. The competition is open to teams from all Canadian law faculties.
