About FLAC Society

Maynooth FLAC offers Law students the opportunity to use their legal knowledge in a practical way. The society endeavours to hold regular training sessions surrounding topics such as Landlord/Tenant Law, Employment Law and issues surrounding Public Order Offences. Clinics provide free legal advice to the Maynooth community. They give students the ability to apply their legal knowledge in an informative manner in response to real legal issues. Clinics are held in the Iontas Building on the North Campus of Maynooth University, are open to the Maynooth community and are closely supervised by a qualified barrister.

Currently we are holing our clinics online via the Zoom platform. These clinics are open only to Maynooth University students.

Maynooth FLAC also runs social events, workshops and joint events with other societies within Maynooth University and other institutions. FLAC is a great opportunity to allow Law students to put into practice what they learn in the classroom, help the community and make friends along the way.
