The Legal Skills Triathlon 2015
Held by Derby and District Law Society and in association with Derby Law School, the annual Legal Skills Triathlon took place this year on Wednesday 25 February.

They are partnered with a law student from the University and together, they must conduct client interviews, make court applications and participate in negotiations based on materials provided.
Successful participants receive awards at a ceremony which is followed by Judges Question Time: a panel of local judges invited specifically to answer our attendees questions.
