Fionnuala Richardson and Chloe Chatton, both studying Law with Business degrees, used their legal knowledge and interviewing skills to get through three tough client interviewing scenarios on a range of complex family law issues.
The finals, held at the offices of the law firm Irwin Mitchell LLP in Sheffield, were contested by students from the universities of East Anglia, Gloucestershire, Hull, Kent, Manchester Metropolitan, Oxford Brookes and the University of Law in Leeds.
Fionnuala and Chloe were awarded the top prizes from the Law Society of England and Wales, including the National Law Society Client Interviewing Competition Cup. The pair began their success story with internal competitions sponsored by the law firm Gerard Maye Legal. They will now represent England and Wales in the world finals in Canada in April.
