Schools’ Legal Update 2024

Schools’ Legal Update 2024

Legal Island, alongside the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principals (NAPD), bring together the top lawyers working in education and experts in employment law to update school leaders in Ireland on the most important developments you need to understand before 2024.

The teaching profession is becoming a more difficult job year on year. Problems with the behaviour of pupils, rising expectations of parents and increased class sizes and budget cuts have all combined to often produce a marked deterioration in a Principal’s working life experience.

Join us for an exploration of the unique challenges facing educationalists. Discover how to attract and retain talent and build a resilient and inclusive school culture.

From recent case law to emerging data protection and technology requirements, our comprehensive and topical programme ensures Principals are equipped with knowledge and tools to mitigate risks and avoid costly mistakes.

Get involved in dynamic discussions, connect with like-minded leaders, and leave equipped with actionable insights to safeguard your school's future during these challenging times.

Who is this event for?

This practical seminar will be particularly valuable to school Principals, Vice Principals and other school leaders, including teaching unions.

Why should you attend?

In the rapidly evolving field of employment law, it's crucial to grasp how recent legislation and case law impact school policies. Our programme provides you with the opportunity to delve into complex issues alongside experts and peers, ensuring you're informed about the latest in data protection, technology, and other current topics affecting schools.
