This February, students from the law schools at UBC and UVic will participate in “the world’s first ever Twitter moot”, a virtual event organized by West Coast Environmental Law (WCEL).
WCEL Executive Director and #twtmoot organizer Jessica Clogg said that “Twitter is the perfect medium to raise public awareness about how the law can help protect the environment.”
Team UBC is Meghan Trepanier and Matthew Kalkman and Team UVic is Matthew Nefstead and Julie DeWolf. There will also be teams from Osgoode Hall, University of Ottawa, and Dalhousie Law participating.
The moot will take place Tuesday, February 21st, 2012, at 10am PST (1pm EST), and can be followed at WCEL’s twtmoot list. For more information on the moot case, participants, and judges, visit the WCEL’s #twtmoot homepage.
