On February 7 to 8, Danielle Bisnar judges the Julius Alexander Isaac Moot. The Isaac Moot is a competitive, for-credit moot, organized by the Black Law Students’ Association of Canada held annually since 2008 at the Ontario Court of Appeal. It is named in honour of the late Chief Justice of the Federal Court of Appeal, Julius Alexander Isaac, who was the first Black judge to sit on the Federal Court of Canada. The Moot focuses on an area of law in which issues of equity and diversity arise, often with a critical race theory lens. This year’s problem is based on the Supreme Court of Canada’s 2019 decision in R v Le.
