Elated head coach Jason Gouveia said that it was very rewarding to witness the culmination of all the blood, sweat, tears and hours of training over the past few months.  Dean André Borraine said that the Faculty is justifiably very proud of these students and expressed the Facultys gratitude towards the law firm Norton Rose Inc for sponsoring the TuksLaw participants over the past two years. The mooters obtained valuable skills, which will no doubt benefit their legal careers.
