August sitting of the FE-1 Law of Torts and EU Law Examinations


The Society will offer a sitting of two FE-1 subjects in August 2020.

The Law Society has been actively planning for an additional sitting of the Law of Torts and EU Law examinations to be held in alignment with the government’s roadmap for the lifting of restrictions and public health recommendations.

The health and safety of candidates and invigilators remains our priority and the holding of these examinations is subject to the evolving Covid-19 situation and any public health requirements. In the event that the Covid-19 crisis does not allow us to hold these examinations a full refund of examination fees will be issued.





Tuesday 11 August

Law of Torts

9.30am – 12.30pm

Thursday 13 August

European Union Law

9.30am – 12.30pm


The examinations will be held at the RDS. A suitable Cork venue will also be provided.

March 2020 candidates

Candidates who registered to sit the above subjects in March and did not seek a refund will be transferred to the August sitting and are not required to make a further application. An email confirming registration will be sent to this group of candidates within the next five days. Any candidate who does not receive an email within this timeline should email

Application forms for candidates who did not register for the above examinations in March or who availed of the refund option for these examinations will be available on our website from Friday 12 June.


Those candidates whose only outstanding FE-1 subjects are Tort and/or EU Law will have their paper corrected as a matter of priority and in time for admission to the September Professional Practice Course if successful in passing all eight FE1 subjects.
