UOttawa law hosts Moot competition using VR

The University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Law will be hosting its 2L Leclair VR Moot competition completely in the metaverse. Teams of students will participate in a simulated trial in a virtual reality (VR) courtroom and will argue their case in front of a panel of judges that will include Ron LeClair of LeClair and Associates, retired Justice Ian Binnie, and Justice Jodie-Lynn Waddilove. “This is yet another example of how uOttawa’s mooting program continues to lead and innovate,” says Professor Anthony Daimsis, who supervises the annual mooting competition. “We have many students who are hungry to sharpen their advocacy skills.” UOttawa says it is the first Canadian university “to harness the power of virtual reality to simulate a trial.” The metaverse project is funded through to 2026 by LeClair and Associates.
