UCD Law Students Refugee Law Mooting Success

UCD Sutherland School of Law congratulates four of our final year students who have progressed to the oral rounds of the International Migration and Refugee Law Moot Court Competition which takes place in Ghent in March 2022.   Jessica Commins, Jane Douglas, Kate Miller and Larisa Mirt achieved an excellent result based on their extensive written pleadings, engaging with complex arguments on entitlement to refugee status. The UCD Law team are one of twelve teams invited to Ghent to participate in the oral rounds, from an exceptionally competitive field of forty teams from twenty-three countries.

The team’s coaches for this mooting competition are Cillian Bracken BL and Dr Liam Thornton.

UCD School of Law wishes Jessica, Jane, Kate and Larisa the very best of luck in the oral rounds of this prestigious moot competition.
