MF Advance offers four Advanced Elective learning modules, Corporate Transactions, Advanced Real Estate and Construction, Advanced Dispute Resolution and Legal Technology, and Banking, Finance, and Financial Services, with courses delivered by McCann FitzGerald partners with specialist subject matter expertise.

The curriculum has been developed to provide relevant and practical grounding in key practice areas relevant to today’s requirements for corporate solicitors. The Law Society of Ireland has approved and will oversee programme delivery in conjunction with McCann FitzGerald LLP.

This programme will focus on areas where we see growth and need for highly developed expertise and advice for Irish businesses, and offers the opportunity for participants to gain practical skills and knowledge crucial for their professional growth."

Each elective is carefully crafted to align with the demands of the modern legal marketplace and offers a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical application.
