Law for a Day

Law for a Day Law for a Day

On the 6th of March the School of Law at UL hosted Law for a Day for secondary school students. The day is designed to allow secondary school studenst to experiences what it is like to be an undergraduate law student. The event was organised by Carol Huget of the School of Law, with the assistance of Dr Hope Davidson and Dr Margaret Fitzgerald O'Reilly. The day was attended by a record breaking 55 students from schools all over the country. The students were welcomed in the morning by Dr Margaret Fitzgerald O'Reilly and received an introductory talk by the Head of School Professor Shane Kilcommins. Throughout the day they attended lectures in tort law, contract law and criminal law, as well as participating in a mock trial in the Appellate Court Room in the library, facilitated by Dr Lydia Bracken, Dr Hope Davidson and Dr Margaret Fitzgerald O'Reilly. We hope that the students enjoyed their day. The School of Law would especially like to extend its thanks to our student volunteers, Marcus Naughton, Norah O'Brien, Aidan Lyons and Aoife Finlay and everyone else who helped out during the day. Thank you also to all the lecturers who facilitated the students in allowing them to attend their lectures.
