The Diploma in Legal Studies and Practice at Griffith College Dublin .
I knew I wanted to work in a legal field but didn’t know how to begin my journey. I came across this diploma course and thought it was exactly what I wanted, little did I know that less than a year after completing the course I would be working as a legal assistant in one of Ireland’s top law firms, with little legal or office experience. However, due to the Practical skills I learned throughout my time in the Diploma Course, with modules like Civil Litigation, and Professional ethics and skills for practice, I was given the opportunity to begin my career in the firm.
The friends I made during the course have also since began careers in the legal sector and became qualified as Legal Executives with IILEX.
I could not have completed this course without the help and guidance of the brilliant lecturers at Griffith College, all of whom work as Barristers or Solicitors themselves and do everything they can to aid you in beginning your career with their own personal insight into the legal profession.
I completed the Diploma in Legal Studies and Practice in Griffith College Dublin in 2017 and I am currently beginning my third year of the LLB Honours Programme at Griffith College.
