Since the mid–1990s Ireland has experienced a ‘sea change’ in the social and policy landscapes in this sector. This has arisen in the context of significant inward migration to this country and an unprecedented inflow of international–protection applications, both from individuals and family groups from all over the world.

A substantial national jurisprudence in the area of asylum and immigration law has developed. This case law deals with the meaning, domestic effect, and application of primary and secondary legislation, statements of policy, the Refugee Convention, the European Convention on Human Rights, and EU law. In the wider European context, there is a large and growing corpus of European Court of Human Rights and European Court of Justice case law in this important and fast–moving area of law.


This unique Diploma course will provide participants with an overview of the main components of immigration and asylum law in Ireland including practical knowledge of the State’s application processing regimes in this area. It will also address key legal issues regarding the processing of individual immigration, asylum, and visa applications.
