The Diploma Centre is delighted to once again offer our Diploma in Education Law which begins on 1 November 2019. This advanced level diploma is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the complex legal topics that arise when working in the educational environment or advising on education law matters.
The practice of education law encompasses a diverse range of potential practice areas, including employment law, equality law, conflict resolution, corporate governance, child protection and litigation. Added to this complexity of potential legal issues is the fact that, in order to provide effective and informed solutions, those advising in education law disputes also need to understand the governance and decision-making structures that apply within the particular school.
This course begins with a general introduction to the often fascinating development of education law in Ireland, considering key constitutional and legislative provisions, before reflecting in more detail on the specific day-to-day issues that arise when advising on education law matters or, indeed, when acting as a decision-maker within a school.
The teaching faculty comprises an impressive array of legal practitioners, all of whom have extensive education law experience. The course is designed to be as accessible as possible, with key on-site sessions taking place during standard school holidays and all lectures webcast ‘live’ from the Law Society of Ireland, minimising the requirement for onsite attendance and meaning that those interested in the course can attend almost regardless of location.
