LLB (Hons) in Irish Law
Winner of the Thomas A Findlay Moot Court Prize.
Griffith is a great place to learn and grow. I enjoyed every minute of my time in Griffith. Without exception the lecturers are knowledgeable of their topic and helpful. Learning the law has changed my view of the work irrevocably, due in large part to the expertise of the lecturers and the faculty and college staff.
LLB (Hons) in Irish Law.
In Griffith I have been put into context, either through the mooting competitions or through the regular visits to the court.
BA (Hons) in Business and Law
& SU President 2010
The experiences I have had during my study at Griffith College have surpassed all my expectations.
I have participated in the College Society trips abroad to places such as: Mzuzu, Malawi and to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.
Violet Behan, Business & Law
I qualified from Griffith College with a 2:1 in my degree in Business & Law in 1997. After my degree I decided it was time to test my skills down the professional solicitors route. To achieve this goal I returned to Griffith College to sit the preparatory course for the Law Society entrance exams, the FE1s. I completed all eight exams successfully the first time. In November 2004 I entered into a partnership with a friend, we opened up our own practice Behan Barry, Solicitors, in Claregate St, Kildare. My partner Fidelma Barry specialises in Property Transactions, Mortgage & Re-Financing, Commercial Law & Probate while I specialise in Family Law, Criminal and other litigation matters.
Helena Guilfoyle, LLB Degree Graduate, Barrister at Law, Honorable Society of the King's Inns
On entering Griffith College Dublin as a student of the Law School with no prior legal experience, I little realised how my life might change. The degree programme provided me with a sound body of legal knowledge as well as analytical skills and discipline, thereby providing me with the building blocks upon which I intend to build my career as a barrister.
Jane McCarthy, LLB Degree Graduate, Apprentice Solicitor
Having studied a wide and extremely interesting range of subjects in the course of my LLB degree, I am currently studying for the Law Society's FE1 Entrance Examinations. I found Griffith College Dublin's Law School to be a most friendly, professional, and student-focused place. I would recommend it to anyone.
Ciaran Gilsenan - LLM 2009/2010
Initially I chose to study the LL.M in International Commercial Law at Griffith College because of the range of subjects available however what was even more impressive was the knowledge of the staff in the Law Faculty. Most of the lecturers are practising barristers and bring a wealth of experience to lectures. I was always provided with excellent up-to-date course material and everything else required for research is easily accessible through the facilities in Griffith. The lectures are delivered in the evenings thus catering for those with other commitments during the day. Upon completion of the programme I intend to sit the Law Society’s FE1 entrance exams however I have found that the employment opportunities with an LLM of this standard are many. I would highly recommend Griffith College to those considering post graduate study.
Clare Cotter- LLM 2009/2010
Wishing to pursue a career in commercial law, the LL.M in International Commercial Law was a perfect choice for me. The course stood out for me in particular due to its international outlook and the range of subjects on offer. I have found that the course has lived up to my expectations and I have been particularly impressed by the quality of lecturers, some of whom are the leading authorities in their fields of practice.
Jayne Ross - LLM 2009/2010
As a former LLB student at Griffith College, I realised I had a desire to proceed further and complete an LL.M Masters degree and being in fulltime employment I found that my choice of LL.M options, especially in my preferred area of Human Rights, was extremely limited. I was therefore delighted when Griffith College began offering the LL.M in International Human Rights Law. The course lectures take place in the evenings and are delivered by lecturers who are practising barristers. Law faculty and library staff members have been extremely diligent in ensuring all LL.M students receive individual support. Perhaps most importantly from the point of view of a person working fulltime, the class materials and class discussions are accessible at any time on Griffith’s web based Moodle system. This has allowed my study to proceed at my own pace and convenience. I have no hesitation in recommending Griffith College to anyone considering post graduate study in the area of law.
Niamh O'Connor - LLM 2009/2010
I have found the LL.M Course at Griffith College extremely beneficial. Each subject is studied in the context of International Law. Unlike an undergraduate Law course where the overall focus is placed on the legal systems in England and Ireland, this Masters has provided me with an opportunity to study interesting legal issues relating to several civil and common law jurisdictions. As a result, the LL.M has allowed me to take my knowledge of law to the next level. I would recommend it to any student who is considering undertaking a postgraduate course as it opens new windows of opportunity with your newfound broader understanding of international legal issues.
"Aislinn Feely, Summer 2011 FE1 Preparatory Course"
Great job and thank you for the first lecture on Tort. Made the daunting FE1 much easier to even approach
"Niall Sexton - FE1, Professional Law School"
I passed my final 4 exams. I have to hand it to the college and the lecturers without your help I'm not sure if I would have made it! I cannot speak highly enough of the resources provided by the college and how much that helps take pressure off when looking for information.
Would definitely recommend the college to anyone sitting the FE-1's and will whenever the situation arises.
Gavin Clare - FE1, Professional Law School
Quite simply, if you want to pass the fe-1 law exams first time around do the preparatory courses offered by Griffith College. They breakdown the law in a way that is clear, concise and easy to learn. The lectures themselves have an in-depth knowledge of the subject matter and of the exams themselves. They will equip you with the knowledge, confidence and technique to answer any question on the exam. The preparatory courses are expensive but they are worth every penny. Griffith College lighten the load and I would recommend them to anyone..
Iryna O Connell, October 2009 - FE1, Professional Law School
I just wanted to say a big thanks for your lectures which brought me 60% in my contract exam. I didn't study it before as i come from a civil law country and was delighted with this result.
Dr. Richard Tynan, October 2009 - FE1, Professional Law School
Just to let you know that I passed all 4 exams and have 4 more left to go. I would like to thank you and all the other lecturers for the lectures and material. As a non law student I knew nothing else but what was in the manuals, it is testament to their quality in that they are more than adequate to pass.
Rebecca Dunne - FE1 Studying Online, Professional Law School
I find the facility excellent for studying and catching up on the course. I am currently living and working in Edinburgh so its not too far from Dublin. I find the quality of the videos is great, and you can pause, stop, repeat the video etc. I've no technical difficulties in doing the course online, communication with the tutors and would recommend it to anyone with a busy lifestyle. The Questions and answers on recent years is an excellent idea and supplements of new cases and also I would recommend if they listed recommended articles, books etc during class or up on moodle.
Jim Colgan - King's Inns, Professional Law School
All of the people from the LLB-P, of which I was one, who sat the King's Inns entrance exams have been offered places. I think we all owe you and the faculty a debt of thanks for equipping us with the necessary skills. It is both a success for us and the College. Thank you.
Alicia Hayes - King's Inns, Professional Law School
I would like to take this opportunity to say that the course was excellent, and I would recommend it to others.
Eddie Murphy - King's Inns, Professional Law School
Just a quick note to let you know that I have been successful in gaining a place in the Barrister at Law course in the King's Inns. I did all 5 courses on the preparation course during the summer and found that it was very beneficial to me and I think that my results bear that out. I would, and will, recommend the course to any of my colleagues who will be trying for the entrance exam next year.
Anthony Burke - Professional Legal Studies (IILEX)
Being a mature student, I was quite apprehensive about attending the lectures on my first night, after being out of formal education for so long, but I enjoyed the classes very much and found the course very interesting and the atmosphere in Griffith College was excellent. The facilities and the friendliness of staff and students alike made for a very enjoyable experience.
Marian Foley - Professional Legal Studies (IILEX)
I have just graduated as a legal Executive! Thank you Griffith College. Prior to undertaking the course I had been out of the Education mode for 32 years when I decided to take on the IILEX course. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience , learnt a lot and now feel a great sense of achievement.
Emma O'Sullivan - Professional Legal Studies (IILEX)
The IILEX course was broad and touched off on most of the major areas of Irish Law. It gave me a good ground knowledge of the Law in general. The lecturers were very dedicated and always accessible. Although the course requires a lot of hard work and time, the rewards are well worth it. Progression on from the course is a real reality, the exemption from year one of the LLB(Hons) in Irish Law was a real motivator for me.
