New program can be take on a full-time or part-time basis

Beginning this September, University College Cork (UCC) and the Law Society of Ireland will launch a new "LL.M. (Practitioner)" program for qualified solicitors and barristers with at least two years of professional experience.

Students can take the program full-time over a 12-month period, or a maximum of 36 months on a part-time basis. Students are required to take one mandatory course - Clinical Practice/Reflective Learning - but can choose the rest of their modules.

According to the UCC, the new program was designed to "facilitate practicing legal professionals to gain an internationally recognised masters degree in a flexible manner, individually tailored to their needs and interests."

Applications are due on July 1, 2010.
