Twitter Moot a Success

February 29, 2012

Last week’s first-ever Twitter moot was a success, by all accounts. Although neither UVic nor UBC won the debate (those honours went to the Osgoode Hall team, although UVic did win a people’s choice poll), the event was big news here in BC and beyond, with the hashtag #twtmoot showing up as a Canadian trending topic mid-way through the moot.

Here’s a look at some local coverage:

  • History Made in Twitter Moot (Skunkworks)
  • Legal and Social Media History (Matthew Kalkman – member of the UBC moot team)
  • Osgoode Hall law students win 1st ever Twitter Moot (Press release from West Coast Environmental Law, the event’s organizer)
  • UBC students participate in world’s first Twitter mock court case (The Ubyssey)

Congratulations to all involved!
