Arthur Cox Foundation

The Arthur Cox Foundation is a charitable trust, set up over 50 years ago, as a memorial to the late Arthur Cox, Solicitor.

The Foundation’s funds have been used to assist the writing and publication of Irish legal textbooks and the development of electronic databases of Irish legal materials.

The Foundation also supports an annual Student Prize of €2,000 for best overall results in Law Society PPC I Business Law, combined with PPC II Corporate Transactions elective.

The Arthur Cox Foundation Board, on behalf of Law Society of Ireland which is a trustee of the Foundation, adjudicates on applications and administers the funds of the Foundation. It provides funding to authors to carry out research and meet other costs of the preparation and publication of a text and may require recipients to refund the grants out of royalties. Grants are in the €2,000 - €5,000 range.
