Four legal apps created by final year law students from the Law Plus degree course at the University of Limerick have been launched.

Dr Hugh O'Donnell of Ingenium TC, who was one of the competition judges, said he was overwhelmed by the output of the law students.

The four apps were developed in consultation with Limerick Chamber and UL law faculty member Sinead Eaton.

The School of Law also offered heartfelt thanks to McCann Fitzgerald Solicitors and Neota Logic for backing UL as the first law school in Ireland to offer such a legal tech module. 

The first three apps’ functionality allowed fire safety compliance work to be done, insurance needs to be identified, and company secretary and annual return information to be processed.

The fourth app, which was deemed overall winner, is a tool to assess and learn directors duties.

All 12 students who participated were praised as winners for their valuable contributions.

The apps launch was featured in the Law Society Gazette.
