HOMS Solicitors were delighted to sponsor the University of Limerick v University of Cambridge Mooting Competition, which took place on 6th November in the Moot Courtroom at the University of Limerick.
Pat McInerney, Senior Associate Solicitor, Defence Litigation, took up the role of President of the European Court of Human Rights, and presided over the case along with Jack Nicholas BL and Dr. Norah Burns of the University of Limerick School of Law. The case in question focused on Article 8 and Article 10 of the ECHR.
Congratulations are due to both teams – the applicants, represented by Niamh Shanahan and Bridget Howard of the University of Limerick, and the respondents, represented by Isaac Freckleton and Meredith Philips who travelled from the University of Cambridge to participate on the day. The respondents’ case was successful and the Best Speaker was awarded to Niamh Shanahan from the University of Limerick.
Pat McInerney commented,
“The quality of the arguments and the immense preparation put in by both teams made it a very difficult decision.”
Well done to all involved on a well presented moot.
