First Hooplaw Tournament

Hoop-Law, an annual charity basketball tournament, first started in 1995. The event brings together the legal community in Vancouver, as well as students from the Peter A Allard School of Law and students at Thompson Rivers University and the University of Victoria, for an exciting day of hardwood action. Since its inception, students from the law school at the University of British Columbia have been integral to the organization and execution of the event, and it has become a tradition central to attending law school in Vancouver.

Raising money for charity is the primary focus of the tournament. By 2017, the event had managed to raise more than $1,000,000 in support for local charities. Charities that have received fund through Hoop-Law include The Children's Foundation, Night Hoops, Covenant House, The Vancouver School Board Hot Lunch Program, The Children's Hearing and Speech Centre of BC, CLICK, and SUCCESS.
