Meet the founding Moot Chair
It is my honour to be the founding Chair of the Lloyd Dean Moot hosted by the Black Law Students’ Association at the University of Windsor, Faculty of Law. Established in 2019, this mooting competition was envisioned to fill a gap between undergraduate studies and law school. Through the Lloyd Dean Moot, students with an interest in law can compete in a beginner-friendly tournament, gain introductory lawyering skills, and network with law students, law professors, legal practitioners and sitting justices. We also include a session on admission to law school, and friends and family are invited to an awards reception in celebration of the winners. By the end of the event, it is my hope that interested undergraduate students can see themselves belonging at law school.
