The Diploma Centre, as part of the Law Society of Ireland Law School, has provided continuing professional education and training for over 20 years. Their primary aim as a legal education service provider is to offer high quality, relevant course content. Consequently, their courses meet the needs of legal practitioners in Ireland’s changing market for legal services. Most of all, this is because they are able to innovate and respond quickly to the educational needs of the profession. As a result, the number of courses they offer increases every year. Their courses are open to, and especially relevant for, solicitors, trainees and barristers. In addition, a number of their courses welcome suitably qualified professionals.

Core and innovative course offerings

The Diploma Centre offers a diverse range of courses. First of all, these include core fields of interest for solicitors. Furthermore, they offer innovative new programmes which reflect the specialist areas of practice in which the legal profession increasingly operates.

All of their courses confer postgraduate qualifications. They are available online, live and on-demand. Hence, this provides a dynamic platform of flexible, accessible learning.

New areas of endeavour are a priority. Recent courses include the Diploma in Aviation Leasing and Finance, the Diploma in Insurance Law and the Diploma in Sports Law. All of these reflect the latest thinking and real world insight into these specific areas of practice.

2016 Irish Law Awards

The Diploma Centre won Service Provider to the Legal Profession at the 2016 Irish Law Awards. The award celebrates the Diploma Centre’s achievements during the year. It also focuses on their diverse range of courses and use of technology. These include aspects such as webcasting and ‘‘mobile learning’’ delivered for desktop, laptop, tablets and smartphone.
