COME TO THE BGUILED DEBATE FINALS!
The BGuiled Debate is a spin-off from the Guile Debate, a beloved legal comedy event at
the UBC law school for nearly two decades. Debaters argue for or against an assigned
legal maxim, emphasizing the infusion of wit, joy, and hilarity into the otherwise often dry
subject of law. The BGuiled Debate is open to students as well as members of the bar.
After excelling in the hilarious Try-Outs event on November 1, our four lawyer finalists will
now show off in a comedic battle of wits on January 17, 2018 at the Law Courts Inn in
Vancouver on the maxim: “Be it resolved that the law abhors delay.”
Tickets can be purchased <here>.
All proceeds of the BGuiled Debate will be donated to Aboriginal Home Instruction for
Parents of Preschool Youngsters (“HIPPY”) in Canada. So far, we’ve raised almost $2,000
for this excellent program!

Many thanks to our generous firm sponsors, Slater Vecchio and Lawson Lundell, and to
our devoted individual sponsor, Bruce Fraser.
