University of Western Ontario - Mooting and Legal Clinical Programs

University of Western Ontario Law School

Mooting and Clinical Programs

The Faculty additionally offers many experiential learning opportunities through which students may develop and hone their practical skills, such as their respective advocacy, argumentative, and lawyering abilities, and deal directly with the dynamics of the legal world. Such opportunities are available primarily via mooting and clinical work. Students may partake in numerous in-house, national, and international advocacy/mooting competitions and clinical and professional programs like Community Legal Services, Western Business Law Clinic, Pro Bono Students Canada, and/or a 1-year Judicial Clerkship.

The latter is available to graduating classes and allows students to work with Justices of the Supreme Court of Canada, Ontario Court of Appeal, the Superior Court of Justice, or the Supreme Court of British Columbia. In Ontario, a judicial clerkship counts as articling time. Furthermore, students can involve themselves in various student activities that not only act as avenues for socializing but also for academic and skill development. For example, students may work on the Faculty's Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence, which is published twice a year, and gain editorial experience.
