law and education

BL MAY 31

Welcome to The Honorable Society of King’s Inns. Founded in 1541 under a lease from Henry VIII, King’s Inns is Ireland’s oldest legal institution and oldest School of Law. Many famous legal and political figures over the past centuries have been members of the Society or are former participants in our legal education courses.   

Designed by James Gandon and located on Dublin’s Constitution Hill, King’s Inns is an important example of Ireland’s Georgian architectural heritage. King’s Inns is also one of Ireland’s most interesting social venues, built on a tradition of collegiality and fine dining.

Whilst we are particularly proud of our legal history and the traditions of the Society, our greatest attribute is the unique legal education we offer at King’s Inns. See the list below of courses for would–be lawyers and for people who simply wish to inform themselves on the impact of the law in particular areas of business life and public administration.

To this day, the primary focus of the school is to train barristers of tomorrow on both full and part–times courses offering the:

Degree of Barrister–at–Law

Diploma in Legal Studies

We also offer Advanced Diploma courses for both legally qualified and non–legally qualified participants in fields of:

Law and Education [new – starting September 2017]

Planning and Environmental Law 

Democratic Process and Electoral Law

Applied Employment Law

Corporate, White–Collar and Regulatory Crime

Legislative Drafting

Juvenile Justice

Dlítheangeolaíocht (Lawyer–Linguistics)

Aistriúchán Dlíthiúil (Legal Translation)

Dlí–Chleachtadh trí Ghaeilge (Legal Practice through Irish)

Public Procurement Law

Immigration and Asylum Law

            

It helped to foster a real sense of collegiality among the students – something that is so important to life at the Bar.
