On Wednesday 26th of February the Bar Counsel of Ireland hosted a university debate as part of the Justice Week initiative.
The School of Law selected fourth year student Conor Tuohy as the UL representative for the debate. Conor was on a team with a student from both UCD Law School and Maynooth Law School and argued for the opposition on the motion of: "This house believes that law is politics by other means".
The team for the proposition was victorious on the day. Conor was commended for an excellent speech and was mentored before the competition by Co-Directors of Clinical Legal Education Dr Norah Burns and Dr Hope Davidson.
