3 credits (conditional enrol)

Selection: Students in second and third year must try out in the Fall in order to be selected for the Gale Moot Team. This competition is likely to occur over the course of a weekend, starting on Friday night and ending on Sunday afternoon. Students who do not wish to participate on those days may not enrol in this course.

Note: The Moot is conditional enrol and will be added to the student's course selection once confirmation of participation is confirmed following the moot tryouts. In the meantime, students must select sufficient credits for the term/year. Once approved students will have the opportunity to adjust their credits. Credits may allocated in the following way: either 1 in the Fall term and 2 in the Winter term, or 0 in the Fall term and 3 in the Winter term.

Option A: 3 ungraded credits for satisfactory completion of the oral and written components of the competition. The grading will take into account the oral and written components of the competition. Option B: With notice to the Records Office and the approval of the Moot Faculty Advisor(s) or another faculty member, 3 credits with full academic grading for completing the moot plus another writing project. The additional writing project is to be 10 to 15 pages and related in subject matter to the moot. For grading purposes, the Gale Moot Faculty Advisor(s) will consider the written factum or memorial prepared for the moot and the added written component for grading and will consider the oral presentation as well. If the instructor has not seen the oral arguments, the oral presentation will not be considered. Students pursuing this option must submit the Competitive Moot Credit Form, available in the Academic Handbook, under Forms to the Records Office by the add/drop date in second term. Note: The first place team at the Gale Moot competes internationally at the Commonwealth Cup in September. The Commonwealth Cup is held every two years. Students who advance to the Commonwealth will receive one additional credit which will be given in the same form that the first three credits are given.
