About the School of Law


Welcome to the School of Law in Trinity College Dublin. I hope that our website provides you with the information that you need about our School. We are a scholarly community of staff, students and alumni, dedicated to the pursuit of legal knowledge and critical engagement with the legal challenges that confront modern communities.

If you are a student thinking of applying to one of our programmes, please consult the web pages for the specific programme in which you are interested. At undergraduate level, we offer five programmes that allow you either to specialise in the study of law or to combine this with other disciplines: Business, Political Science, French, and German. At postgraduate level, we have four taught programmes offering an extensive choice in areas such as International and European Business Law, Intellectual Property and Information Technology Law, or International and Comparative Law. We also offer a vibrant postgraduate research programme that supports doctoral research on domestic, European and global legal issues. To help you make your decision on all of our programmes, we have gathered together student testimonials that will give you an insight into the student experience.

If you want to find out more about the School's research, you can read about our research groups and recent projects in the Research section. The staff profiles in the People section will also give you a complete list of each member's publications and projects.
