Message from the Head of School
I’m delighted that you may be considering applying to join the one of our Degree Programmes in the School of Law at Trinity College. Having studied at Trinity both as an undergraduate and postgraduate in the past, I can thoroughly recommend it from personal experience.
We are centrally located in New Square at the heart of Trinity College, which itself enjoys a prime location in Dublin city centre. Dublin is a vibrant and exciting city in which to study and our programmes are well established and have enjoyed considerable success over the years. We offer a wide and well thought out range of modules in the taught LL.M. programme which allow for specialisation, for example in the field of European Business law, while at the same time we ensure that there is diversity in the choices offered. These courses are taught by both full time and part time members of staff, many of whom are the leading experts in their field in this jurisdiction and beyond.
The staff at the Law School look forward to welcoming you to Trinity College if you would like to visit and can give you further information about the programmes offered.
