Certificate for professional educators offered

A Law Society Skillnet course on professional education will begin next month.

This Certificate in Professional Education is aimed at professional educators who design and/or deliver programmes to professionals.

It is suited to educators from a range of professional fields – including law, medicine, accountancy, taxation, pharmacy, and international education.

Law Society Skillnet says that the course recognises the distinct demands facing a professional educator, and the different skillset and knowledge base required.


The blended course takes place online and in-person at the Law Society of Ireland.

It offers full management and general CPD for 2024.

The course begins on Wednesday 10 April and finishes on Friday 28 June.

The schedule for four workshops at Blackhall Place is:

  • Friday 19 April 2024 (10am to 4.30pm),
  • Friday 10 May 2024 (10am to 4.30pm),
  • Friday 31 May 2024 (10am to 4.30pm), and
  • Friday 21 June 2024 (10am to 4.30pm).

Attendance on all four days is required for successful completion of the course.

The programme team will be led by Dr Gabriel Brennan, who has more than 25 years’ experience in providing professional legal education.
