West Coast Environmental Law is holding the World’s 2nd Twitter Moot on November 20, 2012 at 10:00 am PT (1:00 pm ET) where students from Canadian law schools will debate a public right to a healthy global atmosphere and climate change. In 140 characters or less, students will get to practice their advocacy and debating skills using the popular social network, Twitter. This means the general public can watch the debate as it happens in real time.
The Twitter Moot includes five teams of two students each from Schulich School of Dalhousie University, Osgoode Hall Law School at York University, University of Ottawa, University of Alberta and Thompson River University. The Supreme Twitter Court of Canada judges are Michael Geist, Polly Higgins and Lisa Taylor.
