Apple Distinguished Schools award for Blackhall

The Law School at Blackhall Place was honoured with an Apple Distinguished Schools award on Friday, 11 January.

Apple Distinguished Schools accreditation is given to outstanding schools and programmes worldwide that are centres of innovation, leadership and educational excellence.

The award recognises the Law School’s innovative use of Apple technology in the Professional Practice Courses (PPC I and PPC II) for trainee solicitors.

The Law School became the first professional educator in Europe to receive the award in 2016.

21st-century legal education

Students on the PPC I receive an iPad when the course begins, and hands-on tutoring to help them use learning technology throughout and after their professional education.

A multi-touch book of the Law School’s application, created on behalf of the Law School team by Jane Moffatt, Anne Walsh, Paul Mooney and Caroline Kennedy, will be published to the iBook store over the coming weeks and will be freely available to download.

Congratulations to T P Kennedy, Director of Education (pictured, centre) and all of the Law School team.
