Students from Queen Mary used their advocacy skills to beat teams from universities across the UK and Ireland to win the Thomas A Finlay Moot Court Competition.
Rachel Hawkins and Gianni Sonvico, second year LLB students at Queen Mary, University of London, were awarded the first prize at the Moot Competition hosted by University College, Dublin on 26 March 2011.
Margaret Cunningham, Coordinator, said: “This was the first year that Queen Mary was represented in this competition, by two motivated and talented teams. Participating in such competitions truly enriches the undergraduate law student experience."
The other Queen Mary team, Eduard Kutenic and Bonis Llukaci, also performed well and progressed to the final rounds of the competition.
