Dr Connie Healy organised a Summer School in Law for secondary school students in June 2017. The summer school provided participants with an insight into studying law at NUIG. Students travelled from all over the country to participate. Dr Conor Hanly introduced students to Criminal law, Ursula Connolly explored topical issues in Tort law, Dr Ciara Smyth examined the Irish Asylum system, Dr John Danaher explored Game Theory and the Law and Dr Brian Tobin led a session on the Regulation of Surrogacy in Ireland. The students also had an opportunity to meet with current students of the School of Law and learn about the different undergraduate law programmes that we offer. Dr Máire Áine Ní Mhainnín and Dr Deirdre Byrnes, from the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, spoke about the opportunity to study French, German, Spanish and Nicola Murphy and Dr Conor Hanly outlined the many exciting opportunities there are to study throughout Europe and internationally as part of the undergraduate law programmes offered at NUI Galway. The final session, delivered by Dr Connie Healy, focused on outlining the different careers options available both as members of the legal profession (solicitors and barristers) and alternative careers in law.
