Team Lakehead Law

Team Lakehead Law is Elysia Petrone and Ayoub Ansari from Canada's newest law school - Lakehead Faculty of Law at Lakehead University, in Thunder Bay, Ontario (Click here to Google Map it). 

Elysia Petrone (@elysiapetrone) - "L1 anti-pipeline-northerner passionate about climate justice, aboriginal rights, fossil fuel divestment, playing hockey and trying #twtmoot."



Ayoub Ansari (@AyoubAnsari) - "1L passionate about A2J. Focus of my law school is similar to what the #twtmoot is about. A social justice activist addicted social media."



Team Lakehead Law will represent the Province of British Columbia, an intervenor in the appeal.  The Province of British Columbia will be intervening in support of the Yukon government, but with an aim to reducing the impact of any appeal decision on its own mining and other resource extraction laws.
