Sinead Eaton

Congratulations to our School of Law colleague Sinead Eaton on being shortlisted for The Education Awards in the category Best Business and Third Level Institution Collaboration.

Sinead organised a Lawyering project earlier this year for final year law students on AI in the Delivery of Legal services. Sinead liaised with and got support from McCann Fitzgerald Solicitors and Neota Logic to create this opportunity for twelve Law Plus students. Having met with Limerick Chamber and sought their views on Apps that might be useful for their members, Sinead arranged training on how to build the Apps using the Neota platform and the Law students developed four business - relevant Apps on areas such as Directors duties and Fire regulation compliance, as well as one on Company Secretarial requirements.

The Education Awards 2020

The project culminated in the presentation by the students of their Apps as part of a competition, kindly judged by Dr Hugh O’ Donnell of Ingenium, Josh Hogan of McCanns and Aisling Curtis of Microsoft Ireland. This short-listing is great news for the School of Law, faculty from which have previously won other teaching awards, and the constant interaction with other stakeholders like law firms and business is very important to us.

The award winners will be revealed at a black-tie gala awards ceremony on Thursday, February 20th, at the  Ballsbridge Hotel, Dublin.
