2001 Western Odyssey: Law Student Games
From January 3-7, 2001, University of Calgary law students will host the sixteenth annual Canada Law Student Games. The first western venue to ever host the Games, Calgary promises to make Law Games XVI the best ever! Bringing together approximately 1,000 law students from across Canada, the University of Calgary is preparing for one of the biggest events in its law school’s history.
Law Games is a four-day sporting, academic and social conference hosted by law students for law students. This year’s events include a moot, a factum competition, various sporting activities (such as ice hockey, floor hockey, basketball, squash and badminton), as well as opening and closing ceremonies. More importantly, however, Law Games provides a platform for exposing students to Canada’s unique national culture. Since its inauguration in 1986, Canada’s Law Student Games has become an eastern tradition. Calgary plans to make Law Games the truly national event that it was meant to be.
Canada’s Law Student Games typically receives strong support from law firms and other organizations at both the local and national level. The event presents a unique, one-time strategic development opportunity, whereby firms and businesses can market themselves to the largest annual grouping of law students in the country.
