Client Counselling Competition 10 Feb 09

For the Dublin Final of this Competition, Rose Henderson, playing the part of Ruth Downey owner of Rawhide Tanning factory in Kilkenny, was asked to present trainee solicitors with a very difficult moral dilemma.  She was hoping to transfer her assets to her husband to avoid paying a substantial fine as a result of a chemical leak from her factory.  This competition was played in real time in front of judges and an audience, and the winners go forward to the all-Ireland final in Cork before going on to LasVegas.
