The Law Society of Northern Ireland is delighted to announce that Roisin Devlin and Hannah McGrath from the Institute of Professional Legal Studies in Belfast are the winners of the Client Consultation Competition 2017.
Teams from the Institute of Professional Legal Studies, Queens University and Ulster University battled it out to win the regional heat of the 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.
Roisin and Hannah 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 Kent, Canterbury, England from April 19 – 22, 2017.
