Date; - 27/03/2019 


Topic- Membership of the  Irish  Institute of Legal Executives    -


The Programme  Director of the Diploma in Legal Studies and Practice (James Kane  ) Griffith College Dublin sent a communication on 14th March 2019  to all the 2018/19 intake of students for the above  talk on 27th March. Griffith College Law Department hosted our talk. Institute Administrator, Rose Whelan and  two Board members Joe Hughes and Ita O'Gara welcomed the students present.  


The purpose of the evening was to outline the history of the Institute , how we advance the interests of the students. types of memberships, entitlements. Keeping students and  others  informed of developments in the law and legal practice through the  medium of  " 'The Brief'."

Joe Hughes (Education Director) addressed routes to full membership. This was supported by a very interesting  and instructive case study in this area. 

 Application forms for admission for student membership were distributed to those present that evening and on -line students were also addressed on how to become members.


This was informal ,the issue of career change and how to  follow this new career as a Legal Executive was requested. In response an outline of how the college gives it support was indicated.


This was a successful evening with a reasonable attendance.  It would be useful if IILEX could get feedback from those who viewed  the talk on line. 

Last but not least sincere thanks to Matthew Judge Law Lecturer , Griffith College who afforded his lecture time for this talk.  Special thanks to Rose Whelan our Administrator for her efficient organisation for the 20th and 27th events at Griffith College .
