The Honorable Society of King's Inns (founded 1541) is Ireland's oldest legal institution and oldest School of Law. Designed by James Gandon and located on Dublin's Constitution Hill, King's Inns is one of the most important examples of Ireland's Georgian architectural heritage. King's Inns is also one of Ireland's most interesting social venues, built on a tradition of collegiality and fine dining. The reputation of the School of Law is international with a long list of eminent graduates including former presidents of Ireland and of other countries, taoisigh, politicians and, of course, judges and barristers in practice throughout the English speaking world. To this day, the primary focus of the school is still the training of barristers. But it also offers advanced diploma courses for both legally qualified and non-legal qualified participants in fields such as White Collar Crime, Juvenile Justice and Employment Law.
