By Staff Reporter

The corporate law firm A&L Goodbody is to create up to 40 new posts for graduates over the next few months, as part of its Trainee Solicitor Recruitment Programme.

Meanwhile, it is also challenging university students to come up with ideas to protect society from cyber risks.

Its Bold Ideas Student Innovation Award is open to undergraduates or postgraduates from all disciplines, on both sides of the border.

Mark Thompson, head of A&L Goodbody’s Northern Ireland office, said: “As cybercrime continues to become more sophisticated and prevalent, society must remain vigilant to potential threats and take the necessary precautions.”

The closing date for entries to Bold Ideas is Friday, November 13, 2015. For information, log on to
