Course Description

Legislative Training Programme for Local Authority Staff

This Legislative Training Programme is available for delivery in-house on request as an online course for Irish Local Authorities.  Please contact the IPA if you are interested in running this course in your Local Authority.

The modular programme addresses legislation pertaining to the areas of Housing, Planning, Environment, Water and Roads & Transportation Services.

Participants completing the programme gain a greater appreciation of the legislative process and the format and structure of legislation in Ireland. They also have an insight into how to interpret and implement the relevant legislation pertaining to their specific directorates and an understanding of the obligations, responsibilities and impacts of local authorities in implementing that legislation. The programme combines theory, to learn the Irish legal system and the general format of Local Government legislation; and practice, to understand how law is enacted, interpreted and implemented, particularly at local level.  The programme will also examine some general law issues such as injunctions, judicial review and court cases and the implications of these for local government.
