The visit by Aberdeen law students who are members of the Mooting Society in which students debate legal problems started with a tour of the House of Parliament, followed by a question and answer session.

The visit has now become an annual tradition.

Speaking following the visit Frank Doran said:

“It is always a pleasure to meet with the students and I can tell from the standard of their questions that we have some sharp legal minds in our midst!”

Dame Anne Begg said:

“Debating is an integral part of the work for both parliamentarians and lawyers. That’s why this annual event is always so successful.”
