Creative?
Creative 
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Summary... header image

 

Law can be used to help others. It is useful in pursuing a career in a number of fields, including traditional legal practice, but also public policy, regulation, and the NGO (Non-Governmental Organisation) sector. It is a challenging course of study that will change the way you view the world.

The LL.B. Law course at DIT allows students to choose optional modules outside law, enabling you to specialise in a particular area, or diversify your skills.

Certain subjects are considered essential to the study of law. These include core topics, including contract law, constitutional law, property law, criminal law, and European Union law. While building up a base of knowledge in these core areas, law students can choose specialised topics. Dublin Institute of Technology has a strong emphasis on areas of law that recently have undergone rapid change in Irish society. We offer innovative optional modules such as Criminology, Intellectual Property and Media Law, Prison Law, and the Law & Society Research Clinic, where students engage in research for the benefit of NGOs.

Through studying law at Dublin Institute of Technology you will gain highly developed skills of analysis, research, and communication. Your skills in problem-solving will be well-honed. You will develop your awareness of the role of law in society, how law can help to resolve social problems. You can examine the operation of the criminal justice system, how law should respond to new technologies, or carry out research on behalf of a real-world NGO. You will gain skills in critical analysis, develop as a self-directed learner. You will be able to make and evaluate arguments, and take a logical and practical approach to complex questions.
