WeirFoulds is proud to continue to sponsor the Arnup Cup, an annual trial advocacy competition for Ontario law schools, organized by The Advocates’ Society.
The Cup bears the name of the Honourable John D. Arnup, O.C., Q.C., who for many years sat as a distinguished member of the Court of Appeal for Ontario following a career at WeirFoulds as one of Canada’s finest litigation counsel.
Teams from each of Ontario’s law schools participate in the Toronto held trials to vie for the right to represent the province in Canada’s national trial advocacy competition, the prestigious Sopinka Cup.
The moot will be presided over by Mr. Justice Clayton Conlan of the Superior Court of Justice, with senior members of The Advocates’ Society acting as assessors, including WeirFoulds Partners Marie-Andrée Vermette, John M. Buhlman, and J. Gregory Richards.
The continued sponsorship of the Arnup Cup is another example of how WeirFoulds is committed to the continued growth and pursuit of excellence in the legal industry.
