About the Niagara Moot

The Canada-United States Law Institute administers the Niagara International Moot Court Competition, an international law moot that draws teams from law schools in Canada and the United States.

Participating teams address a hypothetical dispute affecting the bi-lateral relationship before the International Court of Justice. The Institute recruits teams, promulgates rules, establishes deadlines, approves the problem, and settles disputes.

The competition is open to all law schools and law faculty across the world!
