Success For Moot Team Coached By LOLG Lawyers

Back to all news

On February 25, 26, and 27, Canadian law students competed in the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, the world’s largest moot court competition, held this year in Ottawa, Ontario.  The team from Osgoode Hall Law School, coached by LOLG lawyers Larissa Moscu and James Renihan, as well as two other litigators, performed exceptionally well, placing 2nd overall in the Competition and winning awards for second best written arguments, 10th best oralist and 7th best oralist.  The Osgoode team will now advance to the International Rounds, held in Washington, D.C, where they will represent Canada and compete against law students from over 80 countries around the world.  This year’s Jessup Problem focuses on the legality of cyber-surveillance and cyber-attacks under international law.   LOLG wishes them success!
