Street Law Prison is an initiative which places Law Society of Ireland trainee solicitors in a prison setting to teach about law.
Like Street Law Schools, the programme aims to promote legal literacy, equality and access to law while also teaching high cognitive and social skills to enhance a participant’s effectiveness in legal matters.
We facilitate a Prison Law programme in Wheatfield Prison, in partnership with the charity, Solas and their Compass Programme for prisoners.
Law Society trainee solicitors also attend Mountjoy prison to work with prisoners to raise their awareness and understanding of the law in areas such as human rights, employment law, refugee rights and discrimination.
