Independent Colleges’ King’s Inns Entrance Examination preparatory course is delivered annually in Dublin and online. This course, which boasts an exceptional lecturing team and the most up-to-date study manuals, has been specifically designed in order to maximise the likelihood of excelling in these examinations.
The King's Inns' Barrister-at-Law degree has been revised to incorporate a new vocational approach. The aim of the course is to enable students to acquire and develop the skills, knowledge and values needed to become an effective member of the Bar. It is a practical, interactive course which bridges the gap between the academic study of law and the practice of law.
All course materials have been fully updated to reflect recent key developments in the law.
On successful completion of the degree course, students are conferred with the degree of Barrister-at-Law. Only holders of the degree may be called to the Bar by the Chief Justice and admitted to practice in the Courts of Ireland as a member of the Bar of Ireland (elements extracted from the Honorable Society of King's Inns' website).
