McCann FitzGerald sponsors students to attend Negotiation Competition in Norway

Two outstanding UCD students are Oslo bound to compete in the prestigious International Negotiation Competition taking place in Norway this June.  UCD Sutherland School of Law student, Matthew Hanrahan (4 BCL Law with History) and team-mate, Conor Rock (3 BA History and Politics) have been sponsored by law firm, McCann FitzGerald to travel to Norway. They earned their place in the world competition by defeating law schools from around the country at the recent National Negotiation Competition in the Law Society of Ireland.

Matthew and Conor (pictured outside the UCD Sutherland School of Law with their trophy) will represent Ireland in the world competition which takes place from June 27 to July 1.  The INC is the oldest and most renowned competition in international legal negotiation with up to 30 teams from around the world participating.  The judging panel consists of legal and business professionals, practicing lawyers, and academic professors in the field of negotiation. Teams take part in an intensive programme which includes a Master class in negotiation plus up to 4 rounds of competition, offering them a unique educational program for international legal practice.

We wish Matthew and Conor every success in the competition and thank McCann FitzGerald for their support.  Further details of the competition are available at this link.
