The Moot Court Module final took place on Saturday 6 February with the victorious team of Aisling Keenan and Niall Gaffney narrowly overcoming Orla Clissman and Andrew Barr in a tense final moot which exhibited everything that is positive about mooting before an initial bench comprising of Dr. Ronán Kennedy, and Mrs. Justice Carmel Stewart in the Final.

The School would like to thank both judges, in particular Mrs. Justice Stewart who travelled down from Dublin, for their time and effort. Special tribute to the ten mooters for their application, effort and enthusiasm over the last five months which culminated in some fantastic mooting.

Thanks to all the members of staff who so generously gave of their time, in particular Tom O’Malley for giving a guest lecture on court etiquette and especially Professor Patrick Lonergan from Theatre Studies who gave a practical and interactive class on public speaking.

The team mentors were Ursula Connolly, Dr. Eoin Daly, Larry Donnelly, Nicola Murphy and Dr. Brian Tobin, with Ursula and Brian’s teams battling in the final and Ursula’s team emerging victorious.
