The Institute of Legal Accountants of Ireland
Mary Hawkins, Rinn, Oranmore, Co Galway. | 087 3289310.
- The Institute of Legal Accountants of Ireland was founded in 1986 by a group of people who recognised the need to establish and maintain standards for Legal Accounting in Ireland. You can see more details about our founders by clicking here.
- The institute's membership currently includes accountants, solicitors, book-keepers, computer operators and computer suppliers.
The Institute has close links to the Law Society of Ireland.
- The Institute holds an annual conference in September or October each year. These conferences offer a comprehensive programme of topical presentations and events relevant to those working in legal accounting and practice administration. The conference also provides a useful forum for exchange of views between members. Links to recent Conferences can be found at the bottom of any page on our website.
- The Institute operates a members only mailing list which provides updates and takes questions from members. Other members contribute with solutions and advice.
- There has emerged over the years a practice of members being able to contact other members for advice and guidance.
- The Institute is run by a Committee which is elected each year at the Annual General Meeting which is held in the Law Society usually in January. The Institute also holds a members meeting in Apr-May each year. Members meetings normally include a presentation on a current topic of interest.
- In 1990 the Institute formed an association with The Institute of Legal Cashiers and Administrators in England and Wales and this has proved beneficial to both Institutes. In 1998 our Institute also established links with the Society of Law Accountants in Scotland.
