Congratulations to Hugh Ó Laoide Kelly, a student in year 2 of the modular Barrister–At–Law degree course, who won Gael Linn’s annual Bréagchúirt Uí Dhálaigh last week!
The competition was established in honour of the former President and Chief Justice of Ireland Cearbhall Ó Dálaigh. This year’s case focused on the Law of Evidence and the rights of accused persons to an identification parade.

Mooting & Debating at King’s Inns
Moot court is a simulated court proceeding in which the participants prepare and deliver written and oral submissions in a hypothetical court case. It is designed to test the participants’ ability to argue the law.
King’s Inns students also participate in several national and international debating, mooting and negotiation competitions. In support of mooting and debating, King’s Inns engages the services of junior practitioners to coach those participating in external competitions. King’s Inns teams have enjoyed much success in these competitions in recent years.
