The Law Society of Ireland have revealed a record number of new solicitors from England and Wales registering to practice law in Ireland.

This year more than 1,800 new solicitors from the jurisdiction of England and Wales had their names entered on the Roll of Solicitors in Ireland, representing a more than 163% increase on the same figure in 2018.

The Director General of the Law Society of Ireland believes Brexit is a large contributor to the surge.
