THE ADVOCATE 431
VOL. 80 PART 3 MAY 2022
aim of BC Access to Justice Week is to inspire engagement in the access to
justice movement and to plant the seeds of change to benefit all Canadians.
Professor Pilliar took a leading role in involving TRU students and creating
awareness for access to justice.
On February 1, 2022, TRU Law students launched the first-ever internal
moot competition. This competition creates an opportunity for students to
participate in a moot adjudicated by members of faculty and volunteers
from the Kamloops bar. Mooting allows students to practise their oral advocacy
skills. It builds their confidence and competencies in a friendly atmosphere
and allows them to benefit from constructive feedback on their work.
This competition was launched by two students, Brett Book and Sarina Trasolini.
Various students volunteered to work on the project, and members
of the Kamloops bar participated as judges in the preliminary rounds. The
final panel of judges consisted of Professor Brad Morse, Justice Bill
Sundhu and Derek Haines.
The prizes were awarded on February 8. Allison Macdonald and Sam
Macdonald finished in first place, followed by Ashwin Gupta and Kyle
Komarnysky in second place and Sabba Salebaigi and Azat Perengliyev in
Practice Restricted To WCB
Sec. 257 Determinations, Opinions and Court Applications on referral
