Thomson Rogers is proud to be bronze sponsor of the AFCC Ontario Walsh Family Law Moot & Negotiation Competition March 7, 2020.

The Walsh Family Law Moot, which started in 2013, was the first provincial family law moot in Canada. This annual event is held at Osgoode Hall, Toronto.

Law schools participating include University of Toronto, Osgoode Hall (York University), Queen’s University, University of Windsor, University of Western Ontario, University of Ottawa and University of Manitoba. This is an exciting collaborative opportunity between law schools, legal academics, family justice system partners and AFCC-O. The goal is to offer law students an opportunity to gain experience and apply their knowledge to the practice of family law in Ontario.

In 2015, the Walsh Family Law Negotiation Competition (focusing on the settlement discussions and negotiations that take place in family law cases) merged with the Appellate Law event. The two are now one: running concurrently on the same day and involving many and varied dedicated professionals donating their time to assist in various capacities for the benefit of the students.
