Ontario Trial Lawyers Association Cup

Toggle secondary navigation

Each year OTLA lawyers volunteer their time to support the development of trial skills, civility and professionalism among law school students by organizing the OTLA Cup. Law schools from across Ontario compete in a simulated trial that covers all aspects of a real court case. The OTLA Cup is held each year in a courthouse, rotating among various cities around the province, and is presided over by a local judge, with OTLA members making up the jury. Through the generous support of various law firms, OTLA members award prizes to the law students who exemplify the best in trial advocacy.
