Sinn Féin MLA Martina Anderson has welcomed the appointment of Mr Paul Mageean to the post of Director of its new Graduate School of professional Legal Education at Magee Campus in Derry.
Ms Anderson said,
"The announcement of the appointment of Mr Paul Mageean and that the Graduate School of Legal Education will be situated at the Magee Campus in Derry is not only good news for the University but the entire North West region.
"This is the first time that this vocational training course for solicitor students represents the first time professional solicitor training has been made available outside Belfast.
"Not only will this enhance the reputation of Magee campus as a first class seat of learning but it will also add the value of city in terms of attracting new investment.
"The first students will be admitted in August and I hope that the uptake will increase in the years ahead. Also in August The Department of Public Prosecution are to set up a office in the city and I have no doubt that this course will attract similar investment to the city." ENDS
