ABORIGINAL LAW SPEAKER SERIES
The Indigenous Law Students’ Association’s 16th annual Aboriginal Law Speaker Series focused on “Indigenous Law: Theory and Practice” and the notion of Canada as a “multi-jural” state. Speakers of note included Joyce Tekahnawiiaks King, director of justice at the Akwesasne Court in Ontario, Métis author Maria Campbell and researcher and recently appointed UAlberta Law assistant professor Darcy Lindberg.
2018 will go down in UAlberta Law history as a momentous year for the Faculty’s competitive moot program. UAlberta Law teams captured first-place trophies at three national moots (Gale Cup, Wilson Moot and Bowman Tax Moot) and two provincial moots (Bennett Jones Health Law Moot and Alberta Court of Appeal Moot), while also placing fifth internationally at the Oxford International IP Moot. UAlberta Law also hosted the Canadian Client Consultation Competition, presided over by Alberta Court of Queen's Bench Chief Justice Mary Moreau, '79 LLB.
