Study Law in Ireland

Summer Program at Trinity College

Quinnipiac University School of Law offers an ABA-approved summer program at Trinity College Dublin, one of Ireland’s premier institutions of higher education. This program provides an introduction to the Irish legal system and Irish constitutional law as well as a variety of classes in Irish, comparative and international law.

Located in the heart of Dublin, Trinity is the constituent college of the University of Dublin, one of Europe’s oldest universities, steeped in history and tradition. Trinity College Law Library, which has holdings in Irish, British and European law, has recently expanded its holding to include North American law. The college’s historic Old Library contains not only the Book of Kells, a world-famous volume of ninth-century illuminated manuscripts of the gospels, but an unparalleled collection of books, art and artifacts relating to Irish history.

Legal education on the global stage

In the 21st century, there are global implications to almost every area and specialty of law. To be effective, lawyers must develop empathy and cultural competence, while understanding diverse international perspectives.

Thanks to a unique array of programs, organizations and travel opportunities, the Quinnipiac School of Law has made global learning a key part of our students’ legal education.

Global Learning Program in Guatemala

The International Human Rights Law Society organizes an immersive service trip and legal conference where students engage with community leaders, NGOs, law schools and local attorneys. Students have the opportunity to stay with host families and exchange legal ideas with students and faculty from local law schools.

Study Abroad

Students may also participate in study abroad programs offered at and by other schools, as long as the programs are ABA-approved and the student receives clearance from our academic dean. In the past, our students have studied throughout Asia, Europe and Africa.

Experiential learning opportunities

Student groups, events and conferences

In partnership with the Civil Justice Clinic, the Human Trafficking Prevention Project is a student-run organization that strives to raise awareness about human trafficking.
