The Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities within the School of Education in Trinity College Dublin are delighted to announce that we have welcomed McCann FitzGerald to work with us as a new TCPID Business Partner.

McCann FitzGerald is Ireland’s premier law firm with over 600 people, including over 430 lawyers and professional staff, in Dublin, London, Brussels and New York. A full service law firm, McCann FitzGerald provides corporate, banking and financial, dispute resolution and litigation and real estate legal services, operating industry sector and specialist practice groups.

Dedicated to achieving results for its clients, the firm encourages collaborative work practices that produce innovative thinking and creative solutions.

The partnership with McCann FitzGerald will allow the TCPID to continue to develop our innovative educational programme for students with intellectual disabilities. In addition to this, the partnership will provide student work placement and graduate internship opportunities which will help to further develop skills and support our graduates as they develop their careers. The ultimate goal is to find permanent employment or further educational opportunities for graduates of the TCPID programme and to help to build true inclusion in the workplace and in the community.
