Lawyers in the Making

Date Posted: 03/08/2015 | Posted In: Latest news

Competing against schools and colleges from across the region, students from QE won Teesside University’s annual Mock Trial Competition. It is the second successive year that QE students have won the prestigious competition and an accolade for the College’s Law Department.

QE’s Head of Law, Giles Bayliss, said:

‘I am extremely proud of the three AS Law students – Evan Kelly, Sophie Weir and Lucy Hardie-Hammond – who performed superbly well in the University’s purpose built courtroom.  They successfully prosecuted a case of ABH and were praised for their performance by Andrew Perriman, Barrister and Senior lecturer in Law at Teesside University. They worked hard to perfect their arguments and deserve their success.’
