Centennial College Paralegal students finished well in the Paralegal Cup, an Intercollegiate Mooting Competition hosted by Humber College, with one pair of students taking home silver. The event represented the first ever mock court competition specifically designed for Ontario college paralegal students.
Centennial's School of Business entered three teams and had a very successful showing with all of Centennial's teams advancing to the quarterfinals. Students Peter Balatidis and Reid Jackson proceeded to the finals against Seneca College. The pair earned second place overall and were awarded the Michael Turvey Memorial Award.
The Intercollegiate Mooting Competition was held at Humber's Lakeshore Campus on November 1 and 2. The event involved four rounds of mooting (arguing a case) on the Saturday, with the playoff rounds held on Sunday. Practicing legal professionals including judges, lawyers, paralegals and law professors evaluated the competitors.
