years in which we actually won were particularly enjoyable because then I
could go into the moot meeting (for students who want to be selected for a
moot) and announce that we had won.”
The law school would like to thank Professor Edinger for her contributions
to our students and our faculty. She will be missed.
Professor Edinger was a strong supporter of the mooting program at Allard
Law and a legendary coach for Allard Law’s BC Law Schools Competitive
Moot team. It is fitting that in her final year of teaching, the Allard Law
team, led by Professor Edinger and co-coach Professor Anne Uteck, again
won this competition. Despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19
pandemic, our students had a very successful mooting season in 2021,
working together remotely to compete against teams from across Canada
Every year, Allard students compete in over a dozen local, national and
international competitive moots, and the legacy of all those who have
worked to support and promote this educational experience over the years
continues to grow. Competitive moots remain a key component of the law
school’s experiential learning program and are often a formative part of students’
legal education, as well as a highlight of their time at law school.
These opportunities would not possible without the generosity and expertise
of the many members of the bench and bar who volunteer their time
year after year to support our students and the mooting program.
