Brazilian students complete Winter School in Family Law at UL

The School of Law, UL, was delighted to host a group of visiting students from Brazil in January 2018 for a four week “Winter School in Family Law”. The students, who are all studying Law in Maringá, Brazil, studied a wide range of Family Law issues including marriage, divorce, domestic violence, surrogacy, children’s rights and cohabitants’ rights. Lectures were delivered by Dr Kathryn O’Sullivan, Dr Lydia Bracken, Dr Susan Leahy and Ms Dara O’Dwyer, School of Law. The students also undertook English classes each morning with the Language Centre, UL.

The Winter School – which was co-ordinated by Dr Kathryn O’Sullivan from the School of Law along with colleagues in the Language Centre – arose from collaborations between the School of Law, UL and the School of Law, UniCesumar. The visiting students were led by their lecturer, Mr Luiz Geraldo do Carmo Gomes, a former visiting Family Law researcher at the School of Law.
