MOOT COURT PROGRAM
The University of Guelph-Humber's undergraduate moot program is devoted to the practice of oral legal advocacy through moot competitions. The Pre-Law Society is responsible for selecting a team of mooters for each competition, who then compete on behalf of GH at national moot competitions. Students are prepared for competitions through workshops and practise sessions, where mooters can receive direct feedback on their arguments and style. GHPLS is proud to have placed and won distinguished advocate awards at many competitions Canada-wide!

THE GH CUP
Founded in 2019 by previous GHPLS President Emily Tessier, the GH Cup is the University of Guelph-Humber's own undergraduate moot court competition! The GH Cup is hosted yearly around the end of April and the beginning of May at the University of Guelph-Humber in Toronto, Ontario.
The GH Cup provides many benefits for participants. It provides students with public speaking and presentation experiences and a chance to try out oral advocacy in a comfortable yet realistic legal setting. On top of building friendships among teammates, mooters also get to meet with other students from universities and colleges across Canada and speak with current law students, practitioners, law professors and real judges throughout the weekend.
Congratulations to the 2023 GH Cup winners:
Kate Shackleton and Mellisa Ing, University of Toronto
