EN: King’s Inns’ online conference on opportunities for law graduates as EU lawyer–linguists

14h00–16h00, Friday 5 March 2021 on Zoom 

Many employment opportunities present in the field of lawyer–linguistics with the European Union. The Court of Justice of the European Union is in the process of expanding its Irish language unit and between now and 31 December 2021 it will recruit around 10 lawyer–linguists. Also, because of Brexit, Ireland is now the main source for English language lawyer–linguists.  

The requirements for such positions, apart from EU citizenship, are a recognised law degree OR professional qualification as a barrister or solicitor AND fluency in the language you will be translating into (Irish/English), and two other official EU languages (which can include Irish/English). Pay and conditions are excellent, and these positions are often a gateway to an even more rewarding EU career. 

King’s Inns will hold an online conference 14h00–16h00, Friday 5 March 2021 on Zoom on opportunities as lawyer–linguists with the EU. The Hon. Ms Justice Ann Power, Judge of the Court of Appeal and former Judge of the European Court of Human Rights, will open the event. Jack Chambers TD, Minister of State for the Gaeltacht and M.
