CLM works with transition year students from two local schools, Chanel College for boys and Mercy College for girls in Coolock. The first part of the project was the delivery of four legal talks on the following legal topics:
1. Introduction to the Irish Legal System
2. The Constitution and Equality
3. Criminal Law
4. Legalities of Social Networking
The second part of the project involved a series of workshops working with the students on the preparation of and participation in a Moot Court on a fictional case to be played out by the students.
The Moot Court took place in the UCD Sutherland School of Law.
CLM would like to thank UCD Sutherland School of Law for providing the court room facility and their hospitality each year. We would also like to extend a special thank you to our funders Dublin City Council (North Central Office) and all of those involved in the project.
