Sopinka Cup

Sopinka Cup

The Sopinka Cup is an annual competition organized by The Advocate's Society and sponsored by the American College of Trial Lawyers. This two-day event is aimed to encourage law schools to train students in the art of oral advocacy. After elimination occurs in various regions across Canada, eight law schools representing various geographical areas of Canada compete in the bilingual National Finals hosted in Ottawa.

The Sopinka Cup was established in 1999 to honour the late Supreme Court of Canada Justice John Sopinka, who was a long time Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.
