HOLMES TRANSITION YEAR PROGRAMME 2022

We were delighted to welcome 12 students this week to our Limerick office to take part in our award-winning Transition Year Programme. The programme runs over the course of one week and gives students the opportunity to gain a real insight into life inside a law firm, through a series of workshops, presentations, challenges and even a court visit!

Through the interactive programme, the students enjoyed –

  • Introduction to the Irish Legal System
  • Preparing a case for trial
  • Digital Communication and how to protect yourself online
  • Street Law Workshop
  • Visit to the Limerick Courthouse
  • Mock Trial

Thank you to everyone who took part and helped facilitate the week.
