INADR 13th Annual International Law School Mediation Tournament 2014

Barbara Jemphrey, Aidan Hughes and Paul Mageean

Congratulations to Aidan Hughes who was awarded 1st Place for Outstanding Individual Mediator at the Mediation Tournament in Chicago.


The INADR 13th Annual International Law School Mediation Tournament was hosted by Loyola University Chicago, School of Law.  The competition ran from 5th - 8th March 2014.  The Institute Bar Team was Bobbie-Leigh Herdman, Conleth Rooney and Aidan Hughes.  Well done to the team for coming 10th Place out of 52 teams from across the globe.


"The competition was fierce in that there were a number of prestigious law schools represented from all over the world. However it was one of the best experiences I have had to date and it was only possible through the support of Barbara Jemphrey and the IPLS. It was a brilliant learning experience and a great opportunity to meet students from the likes of India, Australia and Ukraine, as well as getting to experience the busy Chicago lifestyle. Mediation is definitely a skill of the future, in that more people are looking for alternatives forms to Court and I am very lucky to be able to say that I have been ranked amongst the best mediators in the world."
