IT Law Clinic at UCC

The IT Law Clinic at University College Cork is now up and running.

At the clinic, law postgraduate students provide information to startups on issues of copyright law, data protection, electronic commerce law and web domain names.

The development of the IT Law Clinic builds on UCC’s membership of iLINC, the EU network of ICT Law Incubators (see www.ilincnetwork.eu).


The academic staff are Dr Darius Whelan and Professor Maeve McDonagh.

No fee will be charged for the provision of information.

Startups who wish to seek information on these issues should email d.whelan@ucc.ie.

Requests for information must be submitted in writing only; there is no telephone or interview service. Requests will be admitted on the following basis:

• The clinic deals with issues of copyright law, web domain names, electronic commerce law and data protection law;
• The clinic will not provide information on employment law or company law;
• The clinic will not provide information if litigation has commenced;
• A query will not be admitted if it is unduly complex;
• The startup must have a low annual turnover, normally a maximum of €100,000 p.a.;
• The clinic can normally only deal with queries during semester 1 of the academic year, i.e. September to November;
• If the clinic has sufficient queries for its workload, it cannot take further queries.

Information will be provided in consultation with one of our collaborating solicitors’ firms – McCullagh Wall, Ronan Daly Jermyn and O’Dowd Solicitors. Responses to queries will be provided in a timescale of approximately 4 to 5 weeks. Terms and conditions, notified to the startup, will apply to the information provided.
