UCC law role for FLAC chief executive

Eilis Barry, the chief executive of Free Legal Advice Centres (FLAC), has been appointed as an adjunct professor within the UCC School of Law.

The Traveller Equality and Justice Project (TEJP), which is a collaboration between FLAC and UCC, welcomed the appointment.

It described Barry (small picture) as an expert in anti-discrimination, equality, and access to justice.

‘Chuffed and honoured’

Before joining FLAC, she was a barrister, specialising in employment law, anti-discrimination, and equality.

“Through our partnership with FLAC, Eilis has been instrumental in the development and work of the TEJP, and we are delighted that she is joining the school for 2022-2025 as an adjunct professor,” the project said.
