My name is Kaleb Honer and I’m from Clontarf, the hometown of Bram Stoker – the author of Dracula. I completed my undergraduate law degree in Dublin City University and have more recently completed my LL.M in Intellectual Property Law in Trinity College Dublin.
During my time in DCU, I sat as the Vice-Chairperson to the DCU Free Legal Advice Centre (FLAC) Society, worked under the Irish Innocence Project as a caseworker, and most relevantly was an active member of ELSA DCU. My interest in ELSA began with my participation in the ELSA Ireland Summer Law School in 2014, and since then I have had the opportunity to travel to the likes of the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) and the Council of Europe as a delegate representing ELSA International. Additionally, I am an active member of the ELSA International Working Group on Intellectual Property Rights Compliance.
This is my second term as the Vice-President of Academic Activities to ELSA Ireland. My main project this year is to found the Student Comparative and European Law Review in conjunction with ELSA UK. In addition to this, in a similar vein to last term, ELSA Ireland will seek to participate in any LRGs that we believe will be of interest to our members. Through these projects, I hope to assist ELSA in spreading to Irish Universities who have not had the opportunity to engage in ELSA previously. This will undoubtedly not only benefit our members but, the ELSA network as a whole.
To date, I have gained my most memorable experiences though my ELSA membership, and throughout my term I hope to help other Irish Law Students to avail of the same.
Feel free to contact me in relation to any queries you have about ELSA, the Legal Research Group, the Student Comparative and European Law Review, or how to get involved in your university!
