Moot Tweeting

In what’s being called the first-ever Twitter Moot, law students from York University’s Osgoode Hall won a moot court competition conducted entirely via tweeting on February 21, 2012. The five teams from Canadian law schools each had to make their arguments and answer questions from the judges in 140 characters or less, and they only had 15 minutes to craft their succinct yet persuasive tweets. The winning team of Nicole Petersen and Emelia Baack split a $500 prize.

The tweets in this first Twitter Moot, sponsored by the West Coast Environmental Law Group, are at http://twitter.com/#!/WCELaw/twtmoot.
