Extra-curricular student bodies
The faculty is home to various student bodies with the goal of helping to develop learners’ critical capacities to the fullest, to enhance their communication skills and to develop their academic, technical and practical skills. These groups include the Mooting Society, the Communication and Debate Society, the Law Society and the Griffith Free Legal Aid Clinic (FLAC).
Griffith College Law Faculty
The Law faculty offers a variety of courses at all levels of legal study, from an introductory Certificate in Legal Studies for those wishing to gain a foundation in law to an LL.M. focusing on International Law, giving students a distinct advantage in an internationally-focused corporate world. Students can sit the LL.B. programmes and go on to sit the professional courses to pass the King’s Inns or Blackhall Place exams to become a Barrister or Solicitor. Many of our students also use their degrees to go on to other areas such as business or media.
Many lecturers are active researchers in fields as diverse as Constitutional and Company Law, Gender and Human Rights Law, Intellectual Property and Legal Education. Our lecturers are very involved in their fields, and Griffith College regularly hosts industry events, from book launches to international conferences.
Law students enjoy important access to the Start-Ed Programme, a forum in which students, startup businesses and professional legal advisors come together in clinics for free one-to-one advice from leading legal advisors. Students selected get to sit in on the advisory sessions and, while in College, get real-world experience which can later enhance their career prospects
The Griffith College library is a subscriber to JustisOne, Westlaw UK and Westlaw.ie, some of the world’s premier legal research engines. The college also has a Judge in Residence, providing a link between members of the judiciary and the academic legal community at Griffith College.

What Our Students & Alumni Say
We followed up with some past & current students to see what a difference their Law course at Griffith College has made to them.
I was drawn to Law at Griffith College because of the small class sizes, stimulating active participation and discussion with fellow students and lecturers from a diverse range of backgrounds. During the LLB, I competed in The Irish Times Debate Competition, National Moot Court Competition, the National Negotiation Competition and was selected for the Chief Justice Summer Internship Programme. I believe that my engagement in extra-curricular activities combined with the skillset and knowledge I developed through the course significantly enhanced my career progression.
I selected Griffith College for my studies because I wanted to attend a small institution that allowed for greater engagement with lecturers and fellow students while providing an intellectually stimulating environment. The structure of the LLM programme allowed me to interrogate the legal and political challenges facing nation-states today. It also allowed me to explore a lifelong interest of mine, animal welfare, within the context of international legal mechanisms. Prior to pursuing my Master's degree, I was uncertain as to whether or not I wished to continue being a practitioner of the law however I discovered a genuine appreciation for international legal systems.
