North West counties included in new online pilot programme for solicitors

Counties Donegal, Sligo, Leitrim and Louth are included in a new online pilot programme for solicitors making applications to the courts for a variety of licences.

Under the scheme, solicitors can lodge, pay and track licensing applictions online.

The Courts Service plans to roll out the online e-licensing system next year, with the hope that will result in substantial cost and time savings for solicitors’ firms.

Sligo-based solicitor Michele O’Boyle, senior Vice President of the Law Society of Ireland, has been telling Ocean FM News about the pilot scheme and the variety of licence applications it covers.
