The Common Law Section has always enjoyed a reputation for graduating some of the greatest advocates in Ontario. Our earliest graduates tell us uOttawa excelled in advocacy competitions from the very beginning. Today many of our graduates are leaders in the advocacy bar.
Although much has changed in our law school over the past 50 years, our commitment to advocacy education has not. What may have changed is our conception of advocacy which today includes not only trial and appellate courtroom advocacy, but advocacy before tribunals, international advocacy, negotiation, settlement, mediation.
