Our Law Workshops run onsite or online
Law Modules Ireland onsite provincial workshops are available throughout Ireland. Our panel members, comprising of legal practitioners (Barristers, Solicitors and Members of An Garda Síochána) attend at your school and conduct the legal workshop, focusing on designated legal topics of interest to students, while unravelling the intricacies of the Irish Legal System.
The interactive Law Day incorporates critical legal thinking, discussions, legal quizzes, legal crossword puzzles and Coco’s Law Scenarios. The highlight of the day is the interactive Mock Trial facilitated with the students. The students play the part of the defence and prosecution lawyers, the accused, the witnesses and the Judge and Jury.
The students receive in-depth insight into the Irish Legal System, the court structure and how to become a qualified lawyer, with a focus on laws relatable to their age group (we discuss driving legislation; penalties; insurance and personal Injury claims in Ireland, the role of Gardaí and the DPP, cyber-crime and cyber bullying, plus many more relatable topics).
The focus is on ‘bringing the Court Room into the Classroom’. Annually we host a Mock Trial Competition at Limerick Courthouse. All schools involved with LMI are invited to compete. We link in with major Universities and students are invited to attend a Law University Day.
