The 2012 Annual Moot Court event took place on the 6th March last. The evening was a great success and thank you to all the students who came along to support their colleagues.
The two teams competing were Mr. Eoin Coffey (BCL Clinical) and Ms. Laura Hurley (BCLF) for the Appellant and Ms. Julie O’Leary (BCL Clinical) and Mr. John Beechinor (BCL Clinical) for the Respondents. The Moot Court was presided over by Mr. Justice Frank Clarke and Mr. Justice Kevin Feeney of the High Court, in Court 1 of the Washington Street Courthouse. The James D Donegan Moot Court Prize, kindly sponsored by Sally Donegan of Donegan and Co. Solicitors, Cobh, was awarded to the Respondents, John Beechinor and Julie O’Leary.
