The Moot Court Module final took place on Saturday 28 January with the victorious team of Frances Whelan and Emily Keilty narrowly overcoming Darra Deane and Jonathan Harte in a tense final moot which exhibited everything that is positive about mooting.  The judge for the initial rounds was Tom O'Malley; Ms. Justice Marie Baker of the High Court presided over the final round.

The School would like to thank both judges, in particular Ms Justice Baker who travelled down from Dublin, for their time and effort. Special tribute to all the 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 Dr. Ian Walsh 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.  Eoin and Brian’s teams competed in the final, with Brian’s team emerging victorious.
