Hear from our graduates
Laura Ní Dhruacháin (technology and commercial contracts solicitor, William Fry)
Certificate in Data Protection Practice
““I have gained a strong foundational knowledge of data protection practice, and insight as to how data protection practice will change under the General Data Protection Regulation. The practical-orientated focus of the course enabled me to fully understand complex legislation in its day-to-day application. As a solicitor working in the area of data protection, this is something that I found most beneficial. The online delivery of the course was great, as it enabled me to learn at my own pace and in my own time without interfering with my work responsibilities.
Sarah Harmon (aviation finance and leasing associate, Mason Hayes & Curran)
Diploma in Aviation Leasing and Financing
“I found the Diploma in Aviation Leasing and Financing to be incredibly informative and practical for not only those in the legal industry, but also for a wide range of other professionals working within the aviation industry. The diploma provides a 360 degree overview of the aviation industry as a whole and focuses on the key legal and other practical issues that arise during the course of a typical aircraft leasing and financing transaction. I found that attending the lectures was a great way to expand my contact base and to meet others in various professions that I may not otherwise come across. I also found that, from engaging with others in the tutorials, it provided me with a new perspective."
