Following the success of last week’s speaker, MEP Deirdre Clune, The European Law Students Association (ELSA) of Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) welcomed MEP Seán Kelly to present a talk on his role and duties within the European Parliament, and the legislative process connected therewith.
Mr Kelly congratulated Waterford Institute of Technology on their achievement of having been granted observer-ship status from ELSA International as the only Institute of Technology in the country to receive the recognition of such, and also praised the ambition of the LLB students involved on the ELSA WIT Committee.
Following his presentation, ELSA WIT President Jade Power and ELSA WIT Secretary General Paul Browne, both final year LLB students, awarded Mr. Kelly with a Certificate of Appreciation for his contribution to the education of the WIT Law students and other students in attendance.
The MEP also met the other committee members: ELSA WIT’s VP S&C Gerard Considine, Treasurer Evan O’Neill, both in their second year of the LLB course; ELSA WIT’s VP for Marketing Aishling Scahill and VP MCC Andrew Whyte, both in their first year of the LLB course; ELSA WIT’s Events Director Grace Cahill, in her first year of the LLB course; and also ELSA WIT course reps for the BA in Criminal Justice course, Veronika Kapsova, and for the LLB course Paul Wall.
His presentation left the attendees very much informed of the European Parliaments voting process, and other legislative processes within the running of the European Parliament, as well as outlining the different parties and their duties involved in such.
ELSA WIT members are looking forward to visiting the European Parliament next month.
