#InPictures: Limerick students celebrate mediation competition win
University of Limerick students Benjamin Blackman, Hailey McLeod, Japnit Bhata, Harry Gribben and Kathleen Coll have won the Kate Fleming Memorial Mediation Competition.
The competition, hosted by UL Law School, involves law and medical students working together in multi-disciplinary teams to settle a claim of medical negligence.
Professor Eimear Spain, associate professor in health law, said: “Law students are assisted in preparing the case for mediation by the medical students, with the medical students also tasked with preparing an expert report on the case.
“UL is committed to nurturing disciplinary foundations and interdisciplinary exchange and this competition is an excellent opportunity for such exchange and collaboration.”
The competition, held annually in memory of former UL School of Law student Kate Fleming, was judged by Professor Spain and Dr Hope Davidson.
