The Niagara International Moot Court Competition

This competition takes place between U.S. and Canadian law schools and also involves issues of public international law (most of the issues are relevant to U.S. Canada relations).  Participating teams address a hypothetical dispute affecting the bi-lateral relationship before the International Court of Justice.  Issues raised in past Niagara Competitions have often involved trade disputes under NAFTA, cross-border pollution disputes, and labor issues.  Students selected to join the Niagara Team will write two briefs in the fall semester and argue in Toronto, February 26-28, 2009.
