Mr Justice John Edwards joins launch of new LIT Law Society
Mr Justice John Edwards joined law students and faculty at Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) for the official launch of the LIT Law Society, which has already signed up more than 75 members.
The Court of Appeal judge attended the special ceremony at the university’s Moylish Campus along with senior faculty members, including Professor Vincent Cunnane, president of LIT.
They were joined by James Collins, head of LIT’s business and financial services department; senior law lecturer John Quigley; and law lecturers PJ Ryan, Edith O’Leary and Ann-Marie Dooley.
The new society, which formed its inaugural committee in March, already has more than 75 members, made up of undergraduate students on the Law & Taxation course as well as some students from other disciplines.
Secretary Robert Jordan said: “The Society was established to develop the understanding and interest of our members in the law, and to provide members with opportunities to pursue a prosperous career in law.”
Auditor Mark McNulty added: “We hope to pass the running of the Society to the next committee, who will undoubtedly build upon what we have set up and put LIT on the map with legal firms and the public at large as having promising law graduates.”
