The Law Society is hosting a networking and information event on Wednesday, 27 July for Ukrainian lawyers who have been displaced during the last number of months .

All members are requested to share this invite with interested parties.

The event will run from 2pm to 6pm, with Law Society President Michelle Ní Longáin opening proceedings, together with Maura McNally SC, chair of the Bar of Ireland.

Legal implications

A panel of guest speakers will address topics including:

  • Introduction to Ukraine Ireland Legal Alliance Working Group (UILA), by Éamonn Conlon SC,
  • The Association of Ukrainian Lawyers, by Anna Bazarchina BL,
  • How to become a lawyer in Ireland, by Ian Ryan (traineeship executive Law Society),
