The University of Guelph-Humber’s Pre-Law Society participated in the Osgoode Cup over the weekend, an annual competition hosted by the law school of the same name located in Toronto.

Those competing at the Osgoode Cup National Undergraduate Mooting Competition do so in two-person teams from several post-secondary institutions.

Competitors present before a panel of judges over a previous appeal or motions case, with this year being R v Alex, 2017.

Classified as a case before appeal, it is what the Osgoode Cup website describes as a “lawyers’s court” that has no witnesses or juries and student competitors focus on legal issues.

The Pre-Law Society told the Post that it could not use information posted on the society’s social media, and thus their competition results can not be published here but those curious can visit their public Instagram page.

Osgoode Cup organizers will also be publicly publishing results on their website.

Humber College was the competition’s premium sponsor and sent a team along with the University of Guelph.

Osgoode Hall Law School is located on the York University campus.
