On Friday 31st January, the School of Law was delighted to formally launch the LLM/MA in Human Rights in Criminal Justice Online masters programme.
Our first cohort of students studying online attended a half-day on-campus workshop and were welcomed to the UL community of scholars by Professor Ann Ledwith, Dean of Graduate and Professional Studies. Professor Ledwith congratulated students on their commitment to the online master’s programme, and highlighted the many benefits and challenges of studying online for a master’s degree.
Professor Shane Kilcommins, Head of School of Law, formally launched the online master’s programme and gratefully acknowledged the commitment of the programme design team (Dr Ger Coffey Course Director, Jess Beeley Education Technologist, David Moloney Graduate and Professional Studies, Adrienne Horan Graduate and Professional Studies, Robert Dalton Centre for project Management, Josephine Conway Senior Postgraduate Administrator), library staff (Dr Gobnait O’Riordan Director of Glucksman Library, and Pattie Punch Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Librarian), stakeholders (Department of Children and Youth Affairs, Research Evidence into Policy, Programmes & Practice (REPPP) and An Garda Síochána), staff teaching on the online programme (Prof. Shane Kikcommins, Prof. Sean Redmond, Dr Ger Coffey, Dr Alan Cusack, Dr Margaret Fitzgerald-O’Reilly, Dr Johnny Connolly, Eoin O’Meara-Daly) and most importantly our students without which the masters programme would not be successful.
