Final Year Law Plus Students Present to Community Law Programme

Final Year Law Plus Students Present to Community Law Programme

On Friday the 7th of April, 4th Year Law Plus students presented at the Community Law Programme. There were 14 students involved in the project which is part of the UL Practicum. Each group presented on a particular aspect of the free movement of persons provisions under EU Law. Group 1 (Thomas Blake, Amy Lee Fox, Grace McKinley and Neil Duffy) focused on the free movement of workers. Group 2 (Bláithín O'Shea, Cían Conboy, Cillian Locke, Margaret Ann Cusack and Seán Kennedy) discussed the free movement of European Union Citizens and their family members. Group 3 (David Burns, Ciara Larkin, Joanna McDonnell, Rachel Rose Murphy and Kieran Ralph) examined Asylum Seekers in the European Union.

The three groups produced excellent information booklets in which they designed the layout and the text. The groups were given a seminar on brochure design by Niamh McMahon of Designers' Ink.

The brochures were printed professionally and distributed to over 30 attendees of the Community Law Programme. The Community Law Programme has been running for a number of years. Its aim is to introduce members of the wider Community to the study of Law and to invite them on to the UL campus to experience what it is like to attend classes at the University. Each year topics are chosen with the help of Donal O’Leary from the Access Office in UL and Caroline Keane from Community Law and Mediation.

The students were supervised by Laura Donnellan, Lecturer in Law at the School of Law.

The seminar and printing was funded by the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Teaching Fund.

Congratulations to all the students who put in a huge amount of work into the project.
