EN: Conference on opportunities for law graduates as EU lawyer–linguists, King’s Inns. 19h00 Wednesday 6 March 2019.

In the European Union, many opportunities present in the field of lawyer–linguistics. The CJEU is in the process of establishing an Irish language unit and between now and 31 December 2021 it will recruit over 20 lawyer–linguists. Also, in the context of Brexit, Ireland will become 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 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 evening conference Wednesday 6 March 2019 from 7pm on opportunities as lawyer–linguists with the EU. The Hon. Mr Justice George Birmingham, President of the Court of Appeal will open the event. The Attorney General, Séamus Woulfe SC will address the conference as will Helen McEntee TD, Minister for European Affairs, Seán Kyne TD, Chief Whip and Minister for the Gaeltacht and M. Thierry Lefèvre, Director–General, DG Multilingualism, Court of Justice of the EU. Other speakers will include former and current lawyer–linguists.
