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.
The first day consists of four mooting rounds followed by the highly anticipated evening dinner. The dinner serves to celebrate the students’ achievements from the day’s competition and to announce the final round team matchups for the following day of competition.
The evening features a number of distinguished and esteemed guests. Influential keynote speakers are from the upper echelon of Ontario’s legal and academic communities.
The daytime mooting competition rounds are free for spectators and observers, and the general public is welcome to attend the formal dinner by purchasing tickets. Ticket sales to our nonprofit dinner formal event help offset costs such as administration and food.
The event serves to be an invaluable opportunity for students to connect with mentors, industry leaders, and future colleagues. Furthermore, it helps us to thank everyone for their hard work and commitment to the success of the event.
We anticipate the Board of Directors of Legal Aid Ontario, Ontario's judiciary, the Law Society of Upper Canada’s Paralegal Standing Committee and the 2013 and 2012 Distinguished Paralegal of the Year recipients. Additionally, we expect five Law Society of Upper Canada benchers, College executives, educational professors, administrators, and senior members of the licensed paralegal community.
