The HACC is a competition for sports law enthusiasts run exclusively by University of Toronto law students. It simulates the salary arbitration procedures used in the National Hockey League (NHL). The HACC’s main goal is to give participants an opportunity to sharpen their oral and written advocacy skills within the specialized context of an NHL salary arbitration proceeding. This student activity is not offered for credit.

After the competition, the event concludes with a symposium where a select group of our guest arbitrators discuss hot topics impacting the NHL.
