One of our Transition Years has been selected to participate in the Solicitors of the Future Programme. Only one student from each selected school may be the lucky participant, and Adam Holden will represent our TY class. The 2017 Programme will take place at the Law Society of Ireland in Blackhall Place, Dublin 7, from Tuesday 7 February to Friday 10 February 2017.

Facilitated by Law Society staff, trainee solicitors, and expert practitioners, the activity-based programme features a visit to the Criminal Courts of Justice, a tour of a large commercial firm, expert-led workshops, guest speakers, courtroom activities, a careers seminar and a mock trial.

Open to schools around the country, Solicitors of the Future encourages TY students to consider a career in law and offers an insight into the role of a solicitor in practice. In addition, the programme shows how the law can be relevant to the daily lives of participants and promotes awareness of the legal processes, constitutional principles, and values which underpin the rule of law in Ireland.
