I had always known I wanted to become a Lawyer. I was excited to discover that Trinity, like the rest of European countries, offers a Law degree at the Undergraduate Level. This was enticing to me as I have the opportunity to commence by Law studies right away, as opposed to a Bachelor’s degree in the US, and then a three year JD programme. I am able to engage in my ideal course in my first year of college. Further, there are a few options to explore after the completion of the degree. One can pursue work in the US, by taking the Bar in certain states, or pursue a career in Ireland. Of course with an Undergraduate degree in Law, one can explore other options that may not fit into the traditional lawyer role, such as journalism, politics, and many other types of jobs. This is a great course for someone who wants to start studying Law immediately, rather than waiting to pursue it after a Bachelor’s Degree.

 What made you decide to study your course at Trinity?

My mom was born and raised in Dublin, so anytime we were over visiting family we stopped by Trinity. It’s as central to the city as possible, and just gorgeous to walk through. I applied and when I got in, a high school teacher of mine asked me: “Will you regret passing on this incredible opportunity to go to the same state schools everyone else is?” I didn’t pass on that opportunity and I couldn’t be happier here. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. Professionally speaking the advantages it puts me at are incredible. I’m able to be a lawyer in the EU or Ireland/UK or the United States all for the time and price it would take most students to get only their undergraduate degree.

STUDENT LIFE AT TRINITY – AN EXPANSIVE STUDENT CULTURE

By: Anna McAlpine (Visiting Student to Trinity College Dublin at the School of English

Home Institution: St. Andrews, English Literature and Philosophy MA (Hons)

Before coming to Trinity I had compiled a list – a list that went on about three pages, bursting at the margins – full of the societies I was going to join when I arrived. I was like an overexcited fresher all over again. Thankfully, for the good of my academics and sleeping pattern, I managed to considerably narrow down that list. I managed to whittle it down to three extracurricular that I have thoroughly enjoyed – namely, Evening Creative Writing Class, the Metafizz and the Law Society. I will expound slightly on what each one entails in case you also want to join any of these fabulous activities!
