Mary Dineen, Tax Trainee
Mary Dineen is a Tax Trainee with Taxand Ireland (William Fry). She obtained an undergraduate and masters degree of law from UCC as well as a Barrister-at-Law degree from Kings Inns. Mary has previoulsy practiced as a barrister in the areas of company and commercial law which inspired her interest in tax.
I received both my undergraduate and masters degrees of law from University College Cork. Having completed my undergraduate degree, I knew my interests lay in commercial law and so I focused my masters’ studies on commercial and Information Technology law.
I then obtained a Barrister-at-Law degree from Kings Inns and practised as a barrister in the areas of company and commercial law. I am currently undertaking the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification with the Irish Tax Institute.
When I obtained a Barrister-at-Law degree from Kings Inns and practised as a barrister for 2 years, I first gained exposure to tax law. It struck me as a very interesting area of law and so I began looking into becoming an AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) with the Irish Tax Institute.
I have found that the skills I acquired through my legal education have been invaluable to me in training to become an AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA). Tax law is primarily based in statute and therefore, the skill one learns in an undergraduate law degree of reading and analysing complex pieces of legislation in order to advise on a given point are particularly useful.
I am currently undertaking the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification with the Irish Tax Institute.
