Get Involved

In recent years IRLI has provided practical assistance around the world on a variety of issues, including legal education and legal profession reform, commercial practice and procedure, judicial reform, access to justice, and human rights. This assistance primarily takes the form of supporting projects whereby volunteer legal specialist teams travel overseas with a view to convening training workshops, hosting foreign study tours, or providing practical assistance on the ground.

IRLI is always looking for enthusiastic and committed individuals to join these specialist teams or identify new projects. We are interested in hearing from talented individuals who possess the skills and dedication necessary to effectively promote the rule of law in our host countries. In particular we are seeking the contribution of experienced judges, barristers, solicitors, academics, students, NGOs and members of civil society.

If you wish to register as a volunteer please complete our IRLI Volunteer Registration Form and return, along with your more recent CV, to info@irishruleoflaw.ie.

If you have a project proposal you wish to put forward for consideration please send a project outline, including draft budget, to info@irishruleoflaw.ie. Project proposals will be considered at the following meeting of the Board.

Alternatively, we welcome attendance at one of our quarterly meetings. These are open meetings, alternating between the premises of the Bar Council and that of the Law Society, at which anyone may speak on a topic related to the enhancement of the rule of law in the developing world.
