The Climate Bar Association
The Climate Bar Association was established in 2019 and it is a specialist association of the Bar of Ireland which aims to act at the forefront of environmental justice and law in Ireland and to become a thought leader of climate law expertise in Ireland.
The Southern Law Association
Dating from the 1870s,The Southern Law Association (SLA) is an association of solicitors whose members consist of practitioners working in Cork City and County. Every solicitor practicing in the City and County of Cork is entitled to apply to the SLA to be admitted as a member, subject to being proposed and approved by the council of the SLA. The SLA is a voluntary association of its members and is not legally incorporated. It does not have regulatory powers and duties akin to the Law Society of Ireland. However, the SLA has gained official status and recognition over the years. In particular, the SLA is, by law, entitled to nominate five of its members to sit on the council of the Law Society of Ireland.
