As Irish and EU law is constantly evolving, our professional development advanced diploma courses provide a comprehensive and practical grounding across specialist areas of the law. Courses benefit legal practitioners, employees and professionals wishing to upskill or fill gaps key to their organisation’s goals.

With over 15 advanced diplomas currently available, we provide key professional development to participants from a wide range of industries, both nationally and internationally. Increased understanding, knowledge and skills gained assists participants in becoming a more strategic and meaningful contributor in their workplace.

Completing an Advanced Diploma from Ireland’s renowned law school not only enables participants to understand the law but can also help them achieve promotion or career progression.


Our advanced diplomas are professional development postgraduate courses. They are accredited independently by The Honorable Society of King’s Inns. King’s Inns, the only Inn of Court in Ireland, and the Inns of Court in the UK have a long–established and recognised role in providing recognised legal education in Common Law jurisdictions worldwide. 

The skills and competence gained in studying at King’s Inns are transferable, portable and recognised internationally. It is a valuable qualification delivered by distinguished lawyers, members of the judiciary, legal and other practitioners specialising in legal education. 

Some of our advanced diplomas are accredited by other professional organisations, with some offering CPD credits to their members. Please check individual course pages for further information.
