Ms Liz Pope, Examiner of Titles at the Property Registration Authority, recently delivered a lecture to Land Law students studying on the BA (Hons) in Law and BA in Legal Studies at Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT). Ms. Pope spoke about the modern system of registration of property in Ireland. The registration of legal interests has been the subject to critical legislative changes in recent years and Ms Pope’s guest lecture provided students with an invaluable insight to the day – to - day role of the Examiner of Title to land which is an integral part of conveyancing and land registration transactions.
The BA (Hons) in Law is a three year law programme which aims to provide a broad legal education that equips students with general transferable skills, legal knowledge and legal skills that can be applied in a wide range of sectors and industries.
Apart from the wide range of law modules available, students are actively encouraged to take part in debating and mooting competitions. In addition to the study of the core law pathway, it is also possible for students to develop a specialist legal knowledge through the selection of certain modules such as commercial law.
