UBC Takes Home the Begbie


Members of the Allard School of Law team at the BC Law Schools Moot competition. 

Earlier last month, the Allard School of Law at UBC, Thompson Rivers University Faculty of Law and The University of Victoria Faculty of Law competed in the annual BC Law Schools Moot, which was held at the law courts in Victoria this year. 
 
Allard Law took home the Begbie trophy after winning both its divisions, arguing before justices of the BC Supreme Court and BC Court of Appeal. Congratulations to the winning team, which consisted of students Connor Bildfell, Ephraim Fung, Kiran Sidhu, Martin Smith, and Natasha Wood and coaches Associate Professor Elizabeth Edinger and Professor Joost Blom, Q.C. 
 
The moot problem is typically an appeal from a trial or appeal torts, contracts or property decision. This year’s problem involved the issue of joint tort liability and the UK Supreme Court case Sea Shepherd v Fish & Fish Ltd.
 
Allard Law would like to thank DLA Piper and to all those who judged the practices.
