Most Improved Society of the Year
Maynooth University FLAC Society offers Law students the unique opportunity to use their legal knowledge in a practical way. The society endeavors to hold regular training sessions surrounding topics such as Landlord/Tenant Law, Employment Law, and issues surrounding Public Order Offences. Upon completion of these training sessions, members are provided with a Certificate of Achievement.
Our clinics provide free, confidential legal advice to the Maynooth community. They provide the student volunteers the ability to apply their legal knowledge in an informative manner in response to real legal issues.
When in-person, 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 holding our clinics online via the Zoom platform. These clinics are open only to Maynooth University students and available through booking.
Maynooth FLAC also hosts the Johanna Airey Moot Court Competition, a unique, social justice and human rights themed competition. Maynooth FLAC also runs social events, workshops, and joint events with other societies within Maynooth University and other institutions. Maynooth FLAC's student legal rights handbook " A Guide to Student Rights" is available in the John Paul II Library as well as online through our website.
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.
