Law Society welcomes 42 ‘solicitors of the future’
The Law Society of Ireland welcomed 42 Transition Year students from schools around the country as part of a week-long activity-based programme.
Solicitors of the Future is an immersive programme for Transition Year students which encourages young people to consider a career in law and offers an insight into the role of a solicitor in practice.
Over the course of the week, students took part in activities including visits to the Criminal Courts of Justice, tours of large commercial firms, expert-led workshops, guest speakers, courtroom activities, careers seminar and a mock trial.
The programme was facilitated by Law Society staff, PPC I trainees and a number of guest contributors from practice.
