Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test
Ireland will soon be the only English speaking country within the European Union. Many EU qualified lawyers now wish to become Irish qualified in order to fill the gap created by the UK’s departure from the EU.
If you are a national of a Member State of the European Union and are qualified to practise as a lawyer in your home Member State, you may be able to register as a foreign qualified solicitor under the Establishment Directive (98/5/EC).
The QLTT therefore is a fast-track route for qualification as a solicitor in Ireland for international lawyers. The programme is administered by the Law Society of Ireland.
