TY Legal Eagle

Posted on : February 16, 2021

This week lucky Transition Year student Paul Daffy is taking part in the Law Society of Ireland’s “Solicitors of the Future” Transition Year programme. This project encourages TY students to consider a career in law. Participants are given an insight into the daily work of a solicitor as well as showing them how relevant the law is to our daily lives . The students also visit the Criminal Courts of Justice and a large commercial law firm. Workshops, guest speakers, courtroom activities and a mock trial all form part of the programme. In Sligo Grammar School all TY students are given an introduction to the law in a “Legal Studies” module. This new module is taught by Ms. Miriam Martin, herself a Law Graduate.
