Community Law and Mediation and University College Limerick – Housing Law and Policy Online Course – closing date for applications 4 August 2017

On Wednesday, June 21st, the School of Law at the University of Limerick and the Community Law and Mediation (CLM) launched ‘Housing Law and Policy Online’. The new module, which will be available online this September, was introduced in response to the ever more serious demand for housing in Ireland and the increasing attention and controversy that it is drawing at both a national and international level.

Aim & Duration:

The course is aimed at anyone with an interest in housing law and is delivered over a 12 week period, with a mix of online lectures and onsite workshops.  Participants will be required to read relevant cases, legislation and materials (which will be provided) complete online e-activities throughout the duration of the course.   

The aim of the course is to provide students with an understanding of the legal and policy issues surrounding housing law – an area of law that is attracting increasing attention and controversy at both a national and international level.

In addition to affording students a broad understanding of the various sources of housing law in Ireland, the course will consider the policy implications of housing and homelessness and introduce students to key areas of study including social housing and the Housing Acts; property law; landlord and tenant law; and the Residential Tenancies Acts.
