Thanks to the generosity of Aidan Synnott, a UCC BCL graduate practising as a lawyer in the USA, a fund is made available each year to fund travel to research locations outside UCC for PhD and LLM Mode B students.

The fund is valued at $2,000.

The Law Graduate Studies Committee will consider the applications. The entire sum may be awarded to one person or the fund may be split between two or more candidates, at the discretion of the Committee. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously been awarded the prize or a share therein. Applications will be evaluated on the basis of the Committee's view of the value of the proposed travel from an academic point of view in the context of the candidate's overall project. The Committee will seek the input of the supervisor of each applicant. Details of the application procedure are available from the School of Law Office.
