Who we Are

In-house Legal Team

We are a team of solicitors and support staff who provide in-house legal services to Schools, Colleges and Central Services across UCC in support of it's strategic and operational goals.

Involving us early in a project helps identify potential legal issues and find workable solutions. We aim to protect the interests of the  UCC community and manage potential legal risks to it, particularly given the increasingly common occurrence of litigation. 

We are happy to engage and provide information sessions and legal services to your area, tailored to meet your needs.
