Advocacy Accolades

At Windsor Law, experiential learning is a key component of legal education. 

The 2017/2018 advocacy season began with the BLG/Cavalluzzo Hayes Labour and Employment Law Oral Advocacy Competition in October where students Angela Zhu (2L) and Teddy Weinstein (3L), along with their coach Kendal McKinney ‘00, won first place and brought home the Kitchen Cup. In addition to winning the Cup, Weinstein was also recognized as Top Oralist. 

On March 3rd students placed second in the Walsh Family Law Moot led by Cynthia Nantais ‘98. Congratulations to Andie Hunter (2L), Jennifer Eensild (3L), Jessica Laurenza (3L) and Nikki Dehnashi (3L). 

The International Criminal Court Moot was also held in March where students competed in the North American Regional Round at Pace Law School in New York. Team members Cassandra Wolff (2L), Jessica Proskos (2L), Maria Stellato (2L) and Rachael Ward (3L), along with coach Sara Wharton, finished as first runner-up in the North American Regional Round and placed first among the Canadian teams that participated. In addition, Maria Stellato earned 2nd best Defence Memorial and Rachael Ward won Best Prosecution Memorial. The team advanced to the international competition held in The Hague where they performed exceptionally well and advanced to the quarterfinal round from a pool of 65 teams from 42 countries from all over the globe.

Another first-place win was earned by students Kathleen Lindsey (2L), Mark Simon (3L), Adam Lawson (3L) and Shawn Quigg (2L) at the CUSLI Business Law Case Competition held in April with coaches Werner Keller ‘87 and Akiva Stern ‘18. 

These achievements illustrate the excellence and diversity of Windsor Law’s programs and the commitment of its professors to ensuring student success.
