Careers in Law Week 2017

Careers in Law Week, an initiative by the School of Law organised by Dr Brian Tobin in conjunction with the Career Development Centre, took place on the week of Monday 25th September 2017.

The highlight of the week was the  Law Firms’ Fair at the Bailey Allen Hall (Section C) at 3.15pm on Monday 25th September. Students were able to meet representatives from Ireland’s top law firms, network and learn about life in a law firm through interactive panel sessions with partners and trainees from the firms. Ronan Daly Jermyn, Arthur Cox, Matheson, A&L Goodbody, McCann FitzGerald and Eversheds were among the many law firms represented on the day.
