Course Fee In general, there are two levels of fees payable. EU students from EU countries including Ireland pay a subsidised level of fees for both taught courses and research programmes. Tuition fees for students from outside the EU are not subsidised and are thus somewhat higher than for EU students.

Comment At Maynooth Law, we equip students with the core attributes required of the legal graduate, developing students’ problem-solving, advocacy and legal writing skills. We offer critical insights from a range of other disciplines, including politics, psychology, economics and sociology. Students will be exposed to the operation of the law in practice, through engagement with legal firms, public and private sector organisations and community and voluntary groups.
Course Content Increasingly, technical personnel, administrators, and policy-makers are being required to have an in-depth knowledge of relevant legal advances and to deploy an enormous array of analytical, conceptual, professional, and writing skills. Maynooth University Department of Law’s Higher Diploma in Legal Studies addresses this need by offering students a strong core of legal knowledge to support more advanced specialised legal topics pertinent to many typical non-law careers.
Subjects Taught Students must complete 60 credits over the course of the year; 30 credits per semester. There is no compulsory element to the programme: students select their 60 credits from a wide variety of taught courses. The availability of modules is subject to timetabling constraints.
