Katrina Peddle and Anja Kortenaar win 2011 Guérin Cup


Last week, the team of Katrina Peddle and Anja Kortenaar (pictured here during practice) won the Guy-Guérin Cup, Quebec's regional round for the Sopinka Cup.  In addition, Katrina Peddle won for best opening statement and Anja Kortenaar for best closing statement.

They will be heading over to Ottawa for the national Sopinka Cup competition in March.

The team wishes to thank their coaches, criminal defence lawyer Julio Peris and professor Ron Sklar, along with judge-in-residence Allan Hilton, Justice Patrick Healy, Me. Thierry Nadon, Me. Rose-Mélanie Drivod and Me. Alexandre Bien-Aimé. The team is grateful to all the students, friends and even parents who helped them practice.

The Guy-Guérin Cup is named in honour of Guy Guérin (1927-1994), who was justice (1968-1994) and then chief justice (1985-1988) of the Court of the Sessions of the Peace, which became the Court of Quebec, Criminal and Penal Division, in 1988.

The Faculty warmly congratulates Katrina and Anja, and wishes them the greatest of successes in Ottawa next month!
