In support of its mandate, the Black Law Students' Association of Canada hosts the Julius Alexander Isaac Diversity Moot. Named after the late Chief Justice of the Federal Court of Appeal, this oral advocacy competition focuses on equity and diversity issues. It encourages law students to apply critical race theories in responding to a legal problem and is the only moot of its kind to do so.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Moot, which will be held in Toronto, Ontario from February 3-5, 2017, at the Ontario Court of Appeal.
It is our sincere hope that your school will participate in this year’s Diversity Moot. We believe that students will greatly benefit from participating and will become better adept at understanding the intersections of race, law and power.
