TY Law school


Our TY’s attended a Law School workshop facilitated by Law Ed. This was a 2-hour workshop where the students were given an insight into the workings of the Irish legal system and were advised on the various careers that can be pursued with a law degree. This was a most enjoyable ad educational workshop. Thank you to Ms. Garvey for organising.
