Visit to London
From the University of Western Ontario Law School Website:
On March 16, Daniel Bellefontaine, Jennifer Drake, Mark Russell and Fred
Tranquilli competed in the final round of the First Year Appellate Competition. The
final was judged by Peter Downs of Lerners LLP and Professors Dennis Klimchuk
and Syd Usprich and was won by Fred Tranquilli (pictured with Michael Lerner).
This year’s competition featured 87 first-year students in preliminary rounds
judged by third-year students. It was organized by Justin Lambert, Chris Lee, Sara
Luther and Kevin Smyth under the direction of Professor Stephen Pitel. The FYAC
was, for the third consecutive year, generously sponsored by Lerners LLP. The
firm hosted a reception and dinner for all competitors at the Grosvenor Club after
the final round.
