NUI Galway Law Society celebrates centenary

NUI Galway’s Student Law Society (LawSoc) will mark its 100th anniversary with a series of virtual events from 1-8 March.

Guest will include:

On Monday, 8 March, LawSoc marks the end of the centenary celebrations with a webinar marking International Women’s Day.

Guests include:

  • Michele O’Boyle, 2019/20 President of the Law Society,
  • Maura McNallychair of the Bar Council,
  • Anne Marie McMahon, An Garda Síochána Deputy Commissioner.

The event will be moderated by NUI Galway law lecturer, Ursula Connolly.


LawSoc auditor Niamh Lynch said: “We are delighted to be launching our LawSoc100 Centenary Celebrations.

“We  hope that the celebrations will allow us an opportunity to reflect on the last 100 years of the Law Society, which has grown to become one of the largest societies in NUI Galway, and indeed one of the oldest in the country.”


President of NUI Galway, Ciarán Ó hÓgartaigh said “The Law Society encapsulates values of respect for each other, excellence, openness and sustainability.

“The 100th anniversary is significant in that the society has sustained the student traditions over the years – a place I remember as one of oratory and welcome.

“The Law Society starts a new century now, and in doing so we recognise the importance of law in society, especially for those most vulnerable in society who very often need the protection of law.”

All events take place online, and registration is essential.

Students are also invited to the Virtual Law Ball, on Friday, 5 March.
