Posted by Law Soc on Mon, 22-02-2021

The Student Law Society of NUI Galway are delighted to unveil the programme of events which mark the 100th Anniversary of the Law Society in NUIG.


To mark our centenary, we are hosting a series of virtual events featuring some of the most respected legal minds in the country. We strongly encourage you to participate in these once in a century events. All events take place online, and registration is essential. 


Events are open to members of the public, with preference being for NUIG students, staff and alumni. You do not have to be a law student to attend these events. 


Our Webinar Events over the course of the week will feature guests including The Honourable Mr Justice Frank Clarke (Chief Justice of Ireland, President of the Supreme Court), Dr Tom Courtney (Author of ‘The Law of Companies’, FE1 Company Law Examiner, NUIG Alumnus), NUIG alumni representatives from A&L Goodbody Solicitors, Frank Greaney (Courts Correspondent for Newstalk/Today FM, multi-award winning Journalist and NUIG Alumnus).


On Monday March 8th, LawSoc marks the end of our Centenary celebrations with a Webinar marking ‘International Women’s Day, with guests Michele O’Boyle (2020 President of the Law Society of Ireland (NUIG Graduate)), Maura McNally (Chair of the Bar Council of Ireland, (NUIG Graduate)) and Anne Marie McMahon, Deputy Commissioner of An Garda Siochana. The event will be moderated by Ursula Connolly, Lecturer.


Events are opened to the public, and early booking is advisable. Registration for each event is via Eventbrite. For more information see NUI Galway Law Society Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn pages.
