Alvaro Paul Diaz Trinity Law PHD testimonial

Alvaro Paul Diaz, Chile, Ph.D.

Besides my supervisor, one of the things I like the most of Trinity College Dublin is that its library has the status of a legal deposit in both Ireland and the United Kingdom. This means that it is entitled to receive all the books published in these two countries, a privilege which is shared with only a few of the most prestigious British Universities. This makes the library of the University of Dublin really impressive, with more than five million volumes. Likewise, its electronic databases are very good, so you will seldom come across an article of a legal journal which is not available for you as a Trinity College student.

Cathal Curran, Ph.D.

Having taken on a Ph.D. in the Law School in Trinity in September 2009, I have had nothing but positive experiences to take from my journey so far. One of the most important aspects of study in Trinity for me has been the manner in which efforts have been made by those around me, Ph.D. cohorts and academics alike, to facilitate my integration into the Law School, as a non-Trinity undergraduate student.
Another constructive element of studying in Trinity has been the very useful weekly post-graduate student lunch seminar series, wherein members of the faculty and PhD students meet in order to discuss issues of practical importance such as funding, research methods and materials, and  the research experiences of individual students.  Aside from these in-faculty benefits, the library resources are probably the best in any third level institution in the country, as well as it being an attractive campus both aesthetically and location wise.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Trinity Law School for providing me with the ideal surroundings for study and discovery. Trinity College is one of the best universities in the world with over four hundred years old tradition of scholarship, and the Trinity Law School here is the oldest and most prestigious in Ireland. Trinity College, as well as the Dublin city, is now very internationalised, at law school I can meet with students with various cultural backgrounds. I benefit a lot from communicating and discussing with them on different topics. I am also enjoying the postgraduate seminars and various lectures here, which help me to become more informed and cultivate my interest in my own research. Also, the library here is extremely resourceful and can definitely satisfy our needs for academic work. In a word, I am very lucky and grateful that I can study in Trinity College Law School - a vibrant community full of academic atmosphere and initiative spirit.
