Transition Year Law Modules​

An exciting interactive programme introducing Transition Year Students to the Irish Legal System​

Transition Year Law Modules are conducted as one day Law Modules to Transition Year Students. These visiting law modules are conducted in schools, by members of our panel of legal professions; Barristers, Solicitors and Members of An Garda Síochána. Online individual and online group courses are available also.

Units include various aspects of the legal system including the sources of law, the Irish court system and the principles of stare decisis (rules of precedent) within the common law. It also provides students with a unique insight into law, giving students an inside look into a day in the life of a legal practitioner.

Real life scenarios; case studies and quizzes help to accelerate the learning. The scenario based learning and Mock Trial conducted by the students aim to enhance decision making , reasoning and problem solving skills. Most importantly the students have fun throughout the interactive Law Day.

Schools We Have Worked With

Continuing Professional Development

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is one of the key mechanisms used to foster high standards of professional conduct and professional education, training and competence among registrants.

CPD for Social Workers

It is expected that at minimum a registrant can demonstrate achieving 30 CPD credits in every 12-month period. For those professions that are taking part in a 24 month audit cycle, you must demonstrate achieving 60 CPD credits in a 24 month period.
