Next interview in our Alumni Stories series
The aim of this series is to embrace the diversity of our Barrister-at-Law graduates who are practising in the Courts in Ireland and internationally, but also working in many other professions like communications, politics, the public sector, education, and policy.
So far, our member relations officer Diane Sutton has interviewed six graduates working in diverse and exciting careers. Diane has chatted to them about their professional lives so far. It is great to see each graduate sharing insightful tips for anyone interested in becoming a barrister and the opportunities available to them.

New Mediation course launching this Spring
Alternative dispute resolution mechanisms have never been of greater importance than they are at present. In particular, mediation and access to qualified mediators is becoming a key feature of the Irish legal system, in part thanks to the coming into force of the Mediation Act, 2017.
Coordinated by Cathrina Keville BL, this course is suitable for both lawyers and non-legal professionals. Whether you would like to be equipped to mediate a formal legal dispute, or a dispute between members of a club, society or other body, this course will provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary to mediate.
