Congratulations and welcome to the School of Law
All the information you’ll need to make the right choice for you!
Congratulations on receiving your offer and welcome to the School of Law. We are delighted that you chose Trinity College Dublin to continue your education and we wish you every success for the coming years.
Beginning your College studies involves a transition. Many of you are progressing directly from school, but some of you are returning to education after pursuing other activities in life. In each case, you will need to adapt to a new approach to studying. Indeed, for many of you, this will be the first time that you are studying Law in depth. There are a lot of supports available to help you make the transition into College life.
During the Orientation Week next week (2 - 6 September), you will learn more about how your programme is organised. You will also be introduced to the range of College services that are there to help you throughout your time at Trinity, including your Tutor who will be able to support you individually. A rich variety of clubs and societies can be found at Trinity and you will be able to discover more about their activities and how to get involved. Attached and below you will find an Orientation Schedule for events that we, and the College have organised to help you settle in and get to know us and one another. Please consult it and the general orientation schedule carefully so that you are fully aware of the events for your programme.
We understand that there is a lot of information to absorb at the beginning, so it is good to keep safely everything that you receive in order to be able to refer back to it when needed.
I look forward to meeting you next week. Best wishes for your studies and student life.
With best wishes,
Professor Mark Bell
Head of School
