Willig, Williams & Davidson attorney Michael Fenerty Defends Great Britain in Irish Potato Famine Mock Trial

October 19, 2016

Michael P. Fenerty, a Philadelphia family law and wills, trusts and estates attorney with Willig, Williams & Davidson,  was recently quoted in The Philadelphia Inquirer about his participation in a mock trial at City Hall with students from St. Joseph’s Preparatory School.

The trial examined Britain’s role in Ireland’s Great Famine of 1845 which forced many Irish people to immigrate to the United States. Fenerty, an Irish-American, represented Great Britain, while prosecutors and law students represented Ireland. The high school students made up the jury which determined that Great Britain was guilty.

The event took place during an international convention sponsored by the Irish government focusing on the Great Famine of 1845. The mock trial was hosted by Villanova’s Irish Studies Program and the National Irish Memorial.
