Dónal Merrick – 2016 / 2017
My name is Dónal and I am the Vice President for Seminars and Conferences for ELSA Ireland this year. In all of my activities in ELSA, my emphasis has always been on bringing the opportunities that ELSA offers to as many people as possible. This year I hope to continue in this spirit and increase the participation of ELSA Ireland members in ELSA activities at local, national and international level.
I have previously served as VP S&C for ELSA Maynooth and I also currently serve as Secretary General for this local group. In addition to this, I have served as part of the Organising Committee for the ELSA Ireland Summer ELSA Law School in 2016 and in the Organising Committee for the ELSA Maynooth International Negotiation Competition 2016 and 2017.
As well as this, I currently serve as part of the ELSA International Proofreading Team, where I help to proofread a variety of different ELSA International documents and publications.
In my free time, I am also completing the final year of my law degree at Maynooth University!
This year as VP S&C of ELSA Ireland, my main project will be working on our fourth annual Summer ELSA Law School on Corporate and Finance law. My other priorities will be promoting the ELSA flagship projects of ELSA Delegations and ELSA Law Schools amongst the ELSA Ireland network, as well as encouraging greater co-operation among the local groups of ELSA Ireland in the area of S&C.
I will be assisted in my role this year by Director for Seminars and Conferences for ELSA Ireland, Brendan Rooney.
I am always delighted to discuss any aspect of my work or any possible opportunities for collaboration. I can be contacted by email using the form below.
