This week saw the launch of the 4 Apps created by final year law students from Law Plus. Judges included Dr Hugh O'Donnell of Ingenium TC who said he was 'overwhelmed' by the output of the Law students. The 4 apps had been developed in consultation with Limerick Chamber and faculty member Sinead Eaton and the students did marvellous work. Aisling Curtis, Commercial Director of Microsoft Ireland, another judge, praised the project highly and the School of Law gave heartfelt thanks to McCann Fitzgerald Solicitors and Neota Logic for offering UL the chance to be first law school in Ireland to offer such a legal tech module. The Apps allowed for Fire Safety compliance work to be done, Insurance needs to be identified, and Company Secretary / Annual Return information to be processed. The fourth App, which was deemed overall winner, is a tool to assess and learn Directors Duties. But the feedback from our visitors to the School was very much that all of the 12 students were winners.
Paying keen attention are Sinead Eaton, and the judges Josh Hogan of McCann Fitzgerald, Hugh O'Donnell of Ingenium and Aisling Curtis of Microsoft Ireland
