Leaving Certificate Applied Law Workshops

Our workshops can be delivered onsite and virtually.

They can be incorporated as part of the leaving certificate applied Social Education Programme and enhance the practical achievement task.

We also advise and encourage a blended learning approach of adding one of our eLearning courses – 21st century, self-directed learning using cross platform devices.
Our eLearning courses deliver content in which the student engages with the material through animation, videos. graphics, visuals, scenarios, activation questions and quizzes.

Both onsite and virtual workshops run over:
● 2-hour workshop

We cater for individual class sizes and can also accommodate larger groups.

We undertake to work parallel with individual school requirements to design and develop workshops that respond to the needs of each leaving certificate applied year group.

LawEd is today one of the premier providers of law workshops having worked now with thousands of students nationwide. We have an exemplary record on the people side of the profession as educators, trainers and content makers. Year after year we return to the same schools as our testimonials speak for themselves.
