GOMBAK, 23 February 2015: The IIUM Client Consultation Team became champion of the Harun M. Hashim National Client Consultation Competition held in IIUM on 15 February recently.
There were seven universities that took part in the competition. The IIUM Client Consultation Team managed to beat a team from the University of Malaya in the final round with six marks gap and took first place in the competition. It was indeed a very stiff competition between the two teams. It was really unexpected that they could make it through and became champion in the competition.
The team consisted of four IIUM students. They are Khairunnajihah Aqila Mohd Sofian, Siti Naqulah Mohd Jamel, Mohd Azrizat bin Hamzi, and Nurul Nabila Mohd Adnan.
They viewed this competition as a step to become great lawyers in future. This year, there was also an award for the best council that was won by our own IIUM student, Khairunnajihah.
The Harun M. Hashim National Client Consultation Competition is the national level for the Brown Mosten International Client Consultation Competition.
IIUM hosted the competition in the Ahmad Ibrahim Kulliyyah of Laws (AIKOL) this year. The competition consisted of two prelude sessions and the top two universities with the highest marks would proceed to the final round.
The IIUM team will be representing Malaysia at the Brown Mosten International Client Consultation Competition 2015 in Nebraska USA from 15 to 19 April 2015. ***
