The School of Law and Graduate Entry Medical School hosted the 2018/19 Kate Fleming Mediation Competition in Medical Law on April 3rd. Sixteen students from law and medicine came together in inter-disciplinary teams to settle a claim of medical negligence in a case involving a patient with cauda equina syndrome. Many congratulations to the members of the winning team: Eilbhe Harrington (Law); Conor Tuohy (Law); Bridget Melley (Medicine); Favour Olufemi (Medicine). The standard of the completion was extremely high in this exciting competition, a fact commented on by the judges: Jack Nicholas (Barrister, Mediator and Adjunct Lecturer in the School of Law); Jonathan McCarthy (ADR Lecturer); and Eimear Spain (Senior Lecturer in Medical Law). The School is very proud to host this event each year in memory of a much loved former student, Kate Fleming, and we were delighted to welcome Kate’s Parents, Peter and Kathleen Fleming to the eventl
This competition provided a fantastic opportunity for interdisciplinary learning and proved to be an extremely enjoyable event! Congratulations to all involved.
