School of Law Orientation Week 2021

We are looking forward to welcoming our first year students to the School of Law during Orientation Week. Orientation for new students is designed to welcome you here to NUI Galway and introduce you to university life. Orientation 2021 is a blended programme of online and on-campus activity - an on-campus orientation is scheduled to take place on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of September. All details are below. It is important that you attend both the online and on-campus events for the best experience.

All recordings will be made available via Blackboard in the '1st Year Law Orientation' module, and recorded when possible. Students are strongly encouraged to register as soon as possible so that you can access Blackboard.
