Wilson and Fox Moot wins

Congratulations to our moot teams!

Yaroslavna Nosikova and Khoa Tran received Honourable Mention for best factum component in the Harold G. Fox Intellectual Property Moot on Feb 19-20, 2016. Team members were Yaroslavna Nosikova, Khoa Tran, Alecia Haynes, Audrey Yen with faculty coach Bob Howell. The moot is intended to promote the furtherance of education in the intellectual property field, and to provide participants with the opportunity to interact with jurists of the Supreme, Ontario, and Federal Courts and experienced practitioners of intellectual property law. It is named in honour of the late Harold G. Fox, one of Canada’s leading intellectual property scholars and advocates.

And congratulations to the UVic Wilson Moot team for winning third prize on their factum in the February 19-20 competition. Team members were Jessica Gock, Justin Wong, Rebecca Kantwerg, and Keelan Sinnott with coaches Leah Greathead and Tyna Mason. The Wilson Moot Competition, named after the late Honourable Bertha Wilson, is a national moot competition held annually in Toronto. The Wilson Moot typically involves sections 15, 7 and 1 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and complex social policy issues that inevitably accompany any section 15 or 7 claim.
