Concours Laskin Cup

Toggle secondary navigation

The Concours Laskin Cup is named after former Chief Justice of Canada, Bora Laskin, one of Canada’s greatest jurists and scholars of administrative and constitutional law. It deals with administrative and constitutional matters within the jurisdiction of the Federal Court of Canada. Taking the form of a fictitious appeal to an appellate court of last resort, it is Canada’s premier bilingual moot court competition. Unlike other competitions, at least one member of each team must submit a factum and present oral arguments in the other official language of Canada. It is an excellent opportunity for bilingual Osgoode students to practise their written and oral advocacy in the French language.  A different Canadian city hosts the competition each year.
