Up to five students will be selected annually to participate in the Donald G. H. Bowman National Tax Moot, typically held in Toronto. The moot will involve research and advocacy, both oral and written, and will allow students from Canadian law schools to debate current legal issues in taxation law with senior tax practitioners and with justices of the Tax Court and Federal Court of Appeal. This moot is recommended to those with an interest in advocacy, exacting research and taxation issues. Upper year students are invited to apply. Students receive a 3-hour course credit which they can designate for either first or second term. Two students are paired together as the appellant team and two students are paired together as the respondent team. A fifth participant may be selected as an additional participant, who may perform certain activities including research, peer coaching, and/or factum writing.

Note: LAW 477 Taxation I is a recommended prerequisite.
