King’s Inns Denham Fellowship Info Session

There will be an online information session at 1pm on Wednesday 13th December to assist anyone considering filling in an application form. Please register to attend by clicking this link.

The Fellowship, which is being run by The Bar of Ireland in association with The Honorable Society of King’s Inns, endeavours to encourage more diversity in the legal profession. Denham Fellows will be provided with financial, educational and professional support from point of entry to the Barrister-at-Law degree programme at the King’s Inns all the way through their first four years of practice at the Law Library culminating in a five year programme and ultimately in what is going to be a successful and rewarding career at the Bar.

The Denham Fellowship is a standalone programme, however it seeks to act as a follow on from the many and various well-established access routes to third level education, which are specifically targeted at students from socio-economic disadvantaged backgrounds, currently in operation across universities and other Higher Education Institutions in Ireland. With this in mind, the Fellowship seeks to complement existing access initiatives by bridging the gap between higher education and access to professional practice.

Applications are now open & close on 16th January 2024.
