About Griffith College Cork Law School
Griffith College celebrated its 40 years of excellence anniversary this year and is very proud of its history in providing award-winning higher level educational programmes. Griffith College Cork Law School was established in 2006, expanding on the already established Law School in Griffith College Dublin.
Our lecturing team are a perfect blend of practicing lawyers and academics, therefore providing the student with a very positive and well-rounded education. Our students enjoy the privilege of small class sizes and therefore benefit from invaluable personal attention. Our experienced lecturing team are genuinely committed to the student, and to ensuring the most positive, enhanced learning environment for all.
We are very proud of our graduates who have gone on to pursue very successful careers and accrue many more qualifications.
For example, we have graduates who are now practising solicitors and barristers, others who are working for the Director of Public Prosecutions, the Chief State Solicitor’s Office and others who are qualified New York State Attorneys-at-law.
We also have graduates who have gone on to pursue their Masters and Doctoral studies, making very real and positive contributions to theory and research, across human rights, criminal justice and international commercial law.
