Kawaskimhon National Aboriginal Moot
Generously supported by Mandell Pinder LLP
Advisors/Coaches: Professor Gordon Christie and Dana-Lyn Mackenzie
Team: Kirsten Barnes, Keith Brown, Mark Ebert, David Overall and Steph
Note: The Kawaskimhon National Aboriginal Moot is unique among moot
court competitions in the world, in that it is conducted in accordance with
Aboriginal customs of peaceful negotiation and consensus building rather
than adversarial competition. There are no competitive awards, but the
moot is invaluable in giving Indigenous students and students interested in
Aboriginal law an opportunity to forge bonds with each other and deepen
their understanding of Indigenous legal issues.
Special Thanks: to the amazing team at Mandell Pinder LLP, including
Cheryl Sharvit (partner), and to the great team at the University of Calgary
for hosting the 2017 moot.
Advisors/Coaches: Professor Emeritus William Black, Miriam Isman (Sugden
McFee & Roos LLP) and Mila Shah (Peck & Company)
