Fallon Burns and Dariya-Mariya Petryshyn from Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) were celebrating this week after winning the regional heat of the Law Society of Northern Ireland’s Client Consultation Competition.
The competition, which has been successfully run by the Law Society over the last number of years, provides law students and trainees with an opportunity to test their client communication and interview skills in scenarios judged by practising and former solicitors.
The winning QUB team will now proceed to the final of the Louis M. Brown and Forrest S. Mosten International Client Consultation Competition which will take place at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands.
The winning school will receive a prize of £1,000 from the Law Society towards the travel costs.
Commenting Darren Patterson, Head of Professional Development at the Law Society said:
“We are once again grateful to all the teams from our local universities for their enthusiasm and participation in this year’s client consultation competition.
