Lawer linguist training.

Preparatory course for Irish speakers wishing to apply for lawyer-linguist positions in the European Institutions

As a result of the Irish language achieving the status of an official and working language of the European Union, the European Institutions will be recruiting lawyer-linguists in the years ahead who have an excellent level of competency in Irish. Gaelchultúr Teoranta, in conjunction with King’s Inns, is running a preparatory course from 7 June which aims to teach the language skills required by those wishing to apply for the positions that will become available in Brussels over the next few years.

This full-time course, which is being funded by the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs, will continue until early October 2010 and classes will be held in King’s Inns, Henrietta Street, Dublin 1.

The course is aimed at those who have a law degree or a professional legal qualification (BL or Solr), as well as a good standard of written Irish. All applicants will be required to undergo a language assessment test and the results of this assessment will be taken into consideration when places are being allocated on the course. Successful candidates will not be required to pay a course fee.

Applications for this year’s course must be received by King’s Inns by 4.00 p.m. on Friday, 7 May 2010.

The course brochure and application form are available on the King’s Inns website.
