Dalriada’s Northern Ireland Bar Mock Trial Champions have been invited to compete in the Empire City Invitational, the International Mock Trial event being held in New York on October 21st-23rd 2011. Schools who achieved one of the top three places in each country were invited to submit an application form, along with questionnaires from two students.
We have been notified that our application has been successful, making us the first school from N.I. to ever compete in this world-wide competition. Teams from countries such as Australia, Canada and Korea have been confirmed and 8 reigning American State Champions will also compete.
Dalriada’s Bar Mock Team are absolutely delighted to have been chosen to take part in this international competition. It is a very prestigious event which would allow our pupils to represent their school and Northern Ireland with pride.
Dalriada School has enjoyed participating in the Northern Ireland heats of the competition for several years and as a result have had the great pleasure of watching many pupils develop a real passion for pursuing a career in Law.
The enthusiasm and determination shown by every single member of the team has been outstanding. Their commitment and team work has undoubtedly contributed to ensuring our success.
The team will be working hard over the summer months to prepare for the competition and are keen to maintain the very high standard they have set thus far.
