Two students from the Paralegal Studies degree program had outstanding success at the inaugural 2018 Lions Cup Mooting Competition at York University on June 23rd and 24th, 2018. The 2018 Lions Cup is the first National Undergraduate Mooting Competition held during the summer months, and the first mooting competition held at York University. The competition was co-founded by Humber alumna, Fallon Burns, a Paralegal Studies degree graduate, who is pursuing post-graduate studies at York University.
There were a total of 15 mooting teams from various Canadian universities, including Carleton University, McGill University, and the University of Toronto. Humber College’s team of second year student, Breanne Peacock, and third year student, Daniel Pallag placed fourth overall after the first day of competition, and advanced to the quarter finals. On the second day of competition, Humber’s mooting team advanced to the semi-finals, where they were defeated in a narrow decision of a split judging panel. They were awarded trophies for reaching the semi-final round. Breanne and Daniel are to be congratulated in showing great initiative in representing Humber following completion of the academic year.
