MTB Partner, Colin Mitchell, judges Client Consultation Competition 2019

Our Partner, Colin Mitchell, was delighted to be asked to sit on the Judging Panel of the Client Consultation Competition 2019.

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. This year it was won by University of Ulster (Magee Campus).

Colin said “I was extremely impressed with the standard of the competition. The various tutors deserve a lot of praise – it was obvious that the students were very well prepared. The students themselves were articulate, intelligent and enthusiastic which was refreshing to see. The future of the NI legal profession is bright”.
