As a progressive law firm, we believe that learning from global thought leaders is essential. It's important for personal development, and for providing the best possible advice and service to our clients. That’s why we are pleased to support the Royal Irish Academy (RIA) Discourse Series, the oldest and most renowned series of talks in Ireland. Dating back to 1786, Academy discourses were reserved for the most distinguished academics to first reveal and discuss their work in public.

The next RIA discourse will be held virtually on Thursday 28 April with Professor Sir Adrian Smith, President of the Royal Society, in conversation with Orla Feely MRIA, Vice President for Research, Innovation and Impact at UCD.

Topic: The Future of Higher Education

Date: 28 April 2022

The conversation will examine the impact on higher education of digitalisation and globalisation. It will consider the funding and organisation of higher education and research and the nature and role of leadership in higher education. The relationship between higher and further education, and how higher education can most effectively engage with the policy system, will also be discussed.
