Manchester Met wins 2015 competition

Congratulations to Philippa Byrne and Claire Coleman, BPTC students from Manchester Metropolitan University, who squeaked to first place by a single point from University of Essex undergraduate students Tasneem Sadiq and Madeleine Cowper on 7th March. The finals were hosted by Sussex Law School, winners of the 2014 competition. 36 law schools entered the 2015 competition, the largest number in the 30 years the competition has been running.  Irwin Mitchell solicitors hosted all 3 regional events at their offices in London, Sheffield and Birmingham. We also had a very successful national training day at Oxford Brookes University on 24 January 2015. 85 students were briefed and took part in practice interviews with feedback from experienced coached and ex winners of the competition. 

This long-established law school skills competition has seen a rapid increase in the number of teams over the past 2 years competing to represent their country in the International Client Consultation Competition, which this time is being held in April 2015 at the University of Nebraska. The subject matter under discussion in law schools around the world will be Small Businesses. We see this as an excellent opportunity to reaffirm the importance of commercial awareness to our law students.

The winning team members and the winning law school received prizes from the Law Society of England & Wales to assist them in attending the international competition.
