WALES, U.K. — The Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law will host the Brown Mosten International Client Consultation Competition beginning on April 6-10, 2021 at Swansea University in Wales.
According to organizers, this will be the first time Wales has hosted the event since 2005. Following the cancellation of the 2020 competition due to Covid-19, both the 2020 Competition and the 2021 Competition will take place within the week. The topic will focus on Human Rights.
“We will be welcoming participants to take part in both events, allowing more people than expected to enjoy the beautiful Swansea area,” said Matthew Parry, lecturer at Swansea University’s law school. “We will be updating the website on a regular basis, as the programme is finalised, and we will be publishing the thoughts of past participants, as well as tips and suggestions from National Representatives and coaches over the course of the year.”
The Swansea law school posted the following testimony from Tatiana (DeBerry) Terry ’19, who made up half of the 2019 winning Campbell Law duo.
“Seeing Tatiana and Katie compete at the world stage was amazing,” Essary said. “We enjoyed everything about the international competition, but especially meeting wonderful people from around the globe.”
