Legal Island is a multi-award-winning workplace compliance company working across both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

We help HR professionals understand employment law and how it applies to their workplace.

Frustrated by constant trips to London and a lack of training and resources specific to employment law in Northern Ireland, Legal Island was founded in 1998 by specialist barrister Barry Phillips BEM. Since then we've helped thousands of HR professionals through our expert-led conferences and workshops, Employment Law Hub, and eLearning compliance training for all staff.

Our Conferences and Workshops

Since 1998 we have welcomed thousands of HR professionals and consultants to our conferences and workshops across the island of Ireland. Each conference or workshop we run is delivered by expert employment lawyers and HR practitioners and comes with detailed accompanying notes for reference when you're back in the office. Our conferences and workshops cover all areas of employment law and culminate in the Annual Review of Employment Law conferences in November each year.

Our Employment Law Hub

We cut out the noise to bring you a one-stop-shop for in-depth articles, case law analysis and updates relating specifically to how employment laws apply in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. It's also fully searchable, available 24/7, and our browse by topic function gives you the ability to search for the latest information we've produced based on the 20 most popular topics covering the employment lifecycle, from recruitment and selection right through to tribunal practice, procedures and jurisdictional issues.

Our eLearning Courses

Our eLearning courses enable organisation-wide training in key compliance areas, with a dedicated legal team behind every course we produce. 

With over 750,000 hours of training and course content delivered, more than 200,000 employees across the island of Ireland have now benefited from our services. We support over 1,250 public, private and third-sector organisations with a 100% success rate in the organisations where we have delivered training.

Over 56,000 total hours of R&D and course development have been invested in ensuring that organisations can be assured of compliance, and reduced risk of fines and reputational damage, all at remarkably low costs.
