Twitter Moot Teams and Judges

The Twitter Moot is a unique social media event, which saw 5 teams from law schools across Canada participate in a mock courtroom battle – all over Twitter.  Read on for information about our Judges and our Teams. 

The Teams

Congratulations to Samuel Harrison and Pippa Feinstein who won the moot!  West Coast is grateful to all teams and judges who participated in our Twitter Moot.
