Canadian teams have done well this year – Osgoode Hall Law School, McGill Law School and the University of Ottawa are ranked among the top 32 teams at the moot and are proceeding to elimination rounds tomorrow. I presume that at this very moment, they are studiously preparing for tomorrow’s rounds. The arbitrators, however, are free to go out and enjoy a night at Aux Gazelles
, the designated moot ‘party’ venue.
Another street scene - a camera cannot do justice to the grandeur of this city.
The coolest group of arbitrators at the Moot.

Myself pictured with Alex Gordon (co-arbitrator and lawyer at Lovells, New York). In 2005, I co-coached a team from Queen's University. My team faced Alex's moot team from Harvard University in the elimination rounds. The Queens team beat Harvard in a 2-1 decision before Martin Hunter, who was chair of the panel. I have never let Alex forget that moment. And now I'm blogging about it for posterity!
