Applied Land Law course begins at Blackhall

The 2022 fused PPC Applied Land Law course was launched this week at Blackhall Place.

This subject comes within the knowledge and analytical thinking pillar of professional development for trainee solicitors.

The course is also linked to the skills pillar, through material on interviewing and advising, and legal research.

There is also a property role-play on the legal practice Irish stream.

Building collegiality

The first tutorial will be taught from the perspective of the role of the solicitor.

It will focus on building collegiality between colleagues who will work together to complete the transaction on behalf of the buyer and seller.

Students will be examining key principles, such as caveat emptor and priority, and how to identify and address ethical issues that arise in property transactions.

Tutorials will be facilitated by expert practitioners who have taken time out of their busy offices to educate the next generation of solicitors.

Tutors use a range of strategies to stimulate active applied learning, hinged around specific learning outcomes that assist students in measuring their learning journey. 

Students are encouraged to think of themselves as early-stage professionals who have a role to play in offering a first-class legal service to their clients.
