Workshops for Students

Some of our solicitors and partners regularly visit local secondary schools to host workshops for students, not only encouraging them to consider professions in the legal industry, but also to highlight how the law is relevant to their daily lives and to promote awareness of legal processes and constitutional principles and values in Ireland.

Scholarships

Dr Gordon Holmes, our founding partner, introduced scholarship awards many years ago and we are proud to continue this tradition. We award an annual scholarship to a University of Limerick student studying the LLB in Law and European Studies or Bachelor of Arts in Law and Accounting. We also are a supporter of the Leaders of LIT Student Scholarship programme.

Careers Fairs

Careers fairs are a great opportunity for us to make personal contact with students who are interested in exploring opportunities with our firm. We ensure that a range of personnel including HR, Solicitors, Trainees and Interns are available to speak on a one-to one basis with students at the major careers fairs held by colleges across the country.

Events and Conferences

We strive to continuously build our reputation and trust as thought leaders with our existing and potential clients, industry colleagues and partners by increasing our participation in key industry events, conferences and groups. We achieve this through Partner representation on various industry expert committees, regulatory authority committees and industry associations and by hosting periodic industry and technical update events; facilitating knowledge sharing with our industry colleagues.
