Law and legal studies students selected on academic merit for summer work placement at Property Registration Authority of Ireland (PRAI) in Waterford city

Four undergraduate law students from WIT completed two-week summer work placements at the Property Registration Authority of Ireland in Waterford, over the past summer.

The Law students were selected by the Department of Applied Arts on the basis of academic merit.

Practical experience

BA in Legal Studies students Adrian Brennan and Lee Roche, along with LL.B in Law students Stephen Belton and Cían O Rorke took part in the work placements. The students’ work experience included practical experience of all stages of the registration of land ownership and interests, for which the PRAI has the national statutory responsibility in Ireland.

Stephen says he had a chance to speak with the legal department as well as working on other tasks. “They were very informative about the various legal issues which the PRAI has to deal with, on a weekly basis. After the two weeks I had a much better knowledge of the professional working environment outside of college.” Read more about Stephen's work experience at the PRAI.

Adrian had this to say about his experience “My time spent at the PRA was educational and informative. I would recommend to everyone to apply for the work experience as it is extremely beneficial to my understanding of Land Law. The staff at the PRAI were exceptionally helpful and pleasant to work alongside.”
