UVic Law team wins 2014 Wilson Moot


- Margaret Campbell

Congratulations to UVic’s Faculty of Law team for winning the 2014 Wilson Moot. Students Sarah Ahsan, Devon Black, Vivian Lee and Aislinn Sirk travelled to Toronto to represent UVic against 12 other Canadian law schools on February 21 and 22. It all came down to the final moot on the second day of competition, between the lead contenders from UVic and the University of Western Ontario. Ultimately, the Victoria team emerged on top. UVic also had an impressive showing in other categories of competition. The top oralist prize went to Regan Christensen of the University of Western Ontario, but Victoria’s Devon Black and Aislinn Sirk placed second and third, respectively. The Wilson Moot focuses on equality issues with respect to women and minorities. This year’s (fictional) problem involved the rights of Aboriginal parents and children in private adoption.
