A fortnight ago students from fourth year took part in the public access to law course.
The course revolved around students learning more about the law and the law in Irish society. Students discussed matters such as what are some of the laws in Ireland, and what are different jobs associated with law. This allowed students to become more knowledgeable about the legal system in Ireland and start thinking about whether or not they would like to pursue a career in law.
Students also got to take part in two mock trials, trying out different roles such as witnesses, judges and lawyers. The students who took part in this course are also expecting an exam based on the course in the next few days; this is in order to test how much they learnt. Overall it was a positive experience for all the students who chose to partake in the course and everyone came away a lot more informed about the legal system in Ireland.
