On February 22-23, 2014, the Robson Hall team of Anthony Foderero, Bryton Moen, Andrew Slough, and Heather Wadsworth, traveled to Toronto to compete in the national Gale Cup Moot Competition at the historic Osgoode Hall Court of Appeal building. The students mooted the challenging case of R v NS which deals with whether a witness who wears a niqab (veil covering most of her face) could be ordered to remove the veil in a criminal sexual assault trial. The students mooted against teams from the University of Calgary and the University of Moncton before panels of appellate and superior court judges drawn from across the country. The team was coached by Professor Debra Parkes, Ami Kotler and Georgia Couturier (Manitoba Justice, Prosecution Service), and Meghan Ross (Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP), with terrific support from members of the bench and bar.

Participation in this prestigious national advocacy competition is made possible by the Richard J Scott Endowment Fund which provides scholarships to the students selected to represent Robson Hall at the Gale Cup Moot.
