Disadvantaged students get intern opportunity

Law students from disadvantaged backgrounds may apply to work in the Law Reform Commission (LRC), the Office of the Attorney General (AG) or the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) under a newly launched internship scheme.

The Legal Research Access Internship Scheme 2023 is aimed at promoting wider access to entering the legal professions.

Final year

The scheme is open to final year students in law who are from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds or have disabilities and accessed a higher education institution through an access programme or access route, or are registered with, and in support of services from, a disability support service in a higher education institution in Ireland.

Interns will gain practical experience, undertaking focused legal research work as part of a team, with one-to-one mentoring within the LRC, Office of the A G or Office of the DPP.
