The Paralegal Cup is the only mooting competition in the world that is exclusive to Paralegal students enrolled in a Certificate or Diploma program. The competition strengthens student advocacy and critical thinking skills by focusing on oral and written advocacy, professionalism, and resiliency.
For the past two years I have volunteered at the Paralegal Cup which is an Intercollegiate Mooting Competition. I cannot possibly say enough about this event. We have seen the top students from around the province who have thoroughly impressed the paralegal and academic communities alike. This event has grown in popularity.
I am proud to have been part of this event in past years and am looking forward to volunteering again in 2015. One of my objectives and commitments to the Paralegal Cup Standing Committee is to try and recruit colleges and students to participate in this event.
I am really deeply impressed. I have been in law school moots, I have judged moots, and I have coached moots. I have never seen more effectively organized and better advocacy demonstrated in a moot competition, anywhere I have been.Robert Lapper Law Society of Upper Canada CEO, 2015 Paralegal Cup special guest judge and lawyer
