8. Additional FAQ

NOTES:

You must obtain permission to SKYPE in your tryout and it has to be for an exceptional reason (eg. you are on exchange). First you must obtain permission from Professor Lisa Kerr and then contact Carol.Johnson@queensu.ca to book a SKYPE slot. If you are given permission to book a spot not identified as a skype spot, please remember to SKYPE plus the name of your #1 ranked moot in the@queensu.ca> comment section. A "skype" notation is necessary to make sure we can identify skypers and send instructions to you.

Participating students must be Queen's Law degree candidates therefore exchange students are ineligible.

Ignore Signup Genius confirmation and reminder emails which are not always accurate - a glitch!. Follow the links to the signup to locate the correct time/date of your tryout.

If you have any questions about the tryout process or the official problem, contact student committee members Adriana.Zichy@queensu.ca and Megan.Pfiffer@queensu.ca or Professor Kerr <lisa.kerr@queensu.ca>
