TEISTIMÉIREACHTAÍ Ó IAR–MHIC LÉINN / TESTIMONIALS FROM PAST STUDENTS

Michael Flanigan, Aturnae

“Bhí an cúrsa iontach spéisiúil, tairfeach agus praiticúil. Ba dheas eolas a chur ar na téarmaí dlí as Gaeilge agus cur lenár gcuid scileanna gairmiúla ó thaobh na Gaeilge de. Is iad na trialacha bréige is mó a thaithin liom mar aturnae a ní cuid mhór dlíthíochta. Ar bhonn pearsanta, tá mé ag súil go mór leis na scileanna a d’fhoghlaim mé a chur chun leasa mo chuid cliant de réir mar a éiríonn linn tuilleadh cearta teanga a bhain amach don Ghaeilge ó thuaidh.”

Ronan Munro SC

“Nasc an tArd–Dioplóma sa Dlí–Chleachtadh trí Ghaeilge mo chuid scileanna abhcóideachta agus mo chuid scileanna teanga agus mhisnigh sé go mór mé le cásanna a dhéanamh sa Chúirt trí Ghaeilge. Is acmhainn fíor–luachmhar iad na fasaigh a chuirtear ar fáil mar chuid d’ábhar an chúrsa. Go deimhin cúpla seachtain tar éis dom an cúrsa a chríochnú fuair mé mionteagasc i gcás coiriúil a raibh an díotáil as Gaeilge ann.”
