Student Legal Service
Founded in 2006, the UCD Student Legal Service is one of the most active and
dynamic societies on campus. We’re a voluntary society, established with the aim of providing free legal information to all students in UCD.
If you want to gain practical legal experience while enhancing your advocacy skills, look no further than the SLS. All SLS volunteers receive training from practicing legal professionals as well as academics in the Law School.
We place a keen focus on law in practice and making law more accessible. We also run annual competitions such as UCD’s only Negotiation Competition, Case Study Competitions and Mediation Workshops.
Our First Year Law Exam Prep Sessions are always very popular with members.
Our research has been widely recognised from within and outside UCD. In 2012, the SLS published our “Manual on Students Rights” which won UCD Publication of the Year. In 2013, the society made history when it published Ireland’s first Civic Guide to the Constitution. Our Annual Student Led Publication is a defining feature of each committee and we encourage applications for editor and contributor positions at the start of each Academic Year.
