About

The Post-Graduate Diploma in Law at Dublin Institute Of Technology offers a firm grounding in law for those wishing to pursue careers in the public service, regulation, professional services and other sectors requiring comprehensive legal knowledge and analytic skills.

Overview

The Post-Graduate Diploma in Law at Dublin Institute Of Technology aims to provide students with a deep understanding of the institutional framework and principles of Irish Law, enabling them to apply and critically evaluate legal rules and processes. Students will learn how to draw upon legal sources to propose novel solutions to a range of regulatory difficulties and thus develop high-level reasoning and analytic skills. They will acquire advocacy and policy development skills through engagement with a range of social, commercial and regulatory issues at a national and EU level.

The programme is offered on a modular basis; students must take Legal Skills in their first year of registration, but can choose their remaining modules from the full suite offered.

Career opportunities

Recent graduates have found employment in “Big Five” law firms as well as other private law firms through-out Ireland. Others are working in the public service and in private businesses. Some students take the Post-Graduate Diploma in order to prepare for the Law Society Final Examination Part 1. The programme offers all subjects examined in the FE 1’s, although there may not be precise correspondence in syllabi.

In addition to the professions, graduates are well-placed to succeed in competitions for public service employment and to obtain positions in highly regulated industries such as pharmaceuticals, Information Technology, Banking and Finance, Insurance and Energy.
