What is a cluster event?
A cluster is formed when a number of Bar Associations come together to identify the training they require for their members and the content and speakers whom they feel are most suitable to meet this requirement. In educational terms, it is regarded as training needs analysis, identification, design, and delivery. The Bar Associations identify their location of choice, the most suitable date, and the format for the day which usually includes a networking lunch and evening drinks reception. The clusters are about education, networking, and collegiality. The networking lunch and evening reception is just as important as the educational sessions as it provides a forum for problem sharing and solving and relaxation away from the office. The events have been running since 2012.

- the support and participation of solicitors
- the dedication and hard work by the Presidents, Secretaries, and CPD organisers in the Bar Associations throughout Ireland, and
- the work of Law Society Finuas Skillnet Steering Committee members.
