Welcome to the Brehon Law Society!

Founded in 1976, the Brehon Law Society is a professional association that fosters the profession of law among individuals of Irish ancestry. The Society is comprised of judges, lawyers, law students and their friends. The Society provides a forum for educational, cultural and social activities concerning Irish heritage and tradition. We also seek to promote closer affiliations between the bench, the bar, students of law and the community, and to further a high standard of legal ethics.

Over the past 35 years, the Society has grown from a handful of lawyers to over 500 members and now has branches in many of the law schools in the greater Philadelphia region.
