Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Look into Law Transition Year Programme

‘The Bar of Ireland's "Look into Law" Transition Year Programme is an exciting initiative aimed at increasing students' awareness of the work of The Bar of Ireland and to encourage students to consider a career as a barrister.

This annual "Access all areas" programme, takes place on Monday 5th to Friday 9th February 2018, the programme aims to encourage schools and students from a wide cross-section of society to apply to take part.

The programme is aimed in particular at those who would otherwise have no access to the Bar. To help achieve this, 20% of places are reserved for DEIS schools. 100 places are available with 20% given to DEIS schools and the remaining places allocated by a random lottery draw performed by The Bar of Ireland on Wednesday 22nd November 2017.

The progamme is open to students form Transition Year up to 6th year and the application process will open Monday 23rd October and close at 5pm on Monday 20th November 2017.

Because of the high levels of interest in this programme and the limit of 100 places, schools are asked to nominate one student per year to participate in the programme.

Applications can only be made through the school and not individually. Any applications received outside the application process dates will not be accepted.’
