Michael McHale, Diploma in Law Graduate, Arthur Cox Prize Winner

Michael McHale

 “I’ve had an interest in law for a while, stemming from my days as a journalist. Whenever possible I attended lectures, but when I couldn’t make a Wednesday night class, it was great to have the option to catch-up on the Hub. The module essays were a great way to expand my learning, and the Law Society’s library and online facilities were of huge benefit for these assignments. It was also great getting to know my classmates. As we all came from different backgrounds, we would often approach group assignments and workshops in different ways, which made things more interesting.”



Avril McCrann, Diploma in Law Graduate

“I was a social science graduate from University College Dublin. I wanted to pursue a career in law. I saw the diploma as the perfect opportunity as it offered the core legal subjects. I found the course enjoyable and engaging. It has given me the knowledge to go on and sit my FE1 exams. I would highly recommend a course run by the Diploma Centre to others.”



Brian Kelleher, Diploma in Law Graduate

 “I enrolled in the Diploma in Law to increase my knowledge of the law and to help me in my current role in an insurance claims department. The course is challenging, fast paced and intense. However, the delivery of the course is very amenable to people working with the online educational hub hugely beneficial for those not able to make the weekly lectures. The lecturers are knowledgeable and experts in their modules. Expect to be busy and challenged. Embrace the course as there are huge rewards and satisfaction to be gained from completion.”
