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 in Northern 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 Irish Employment Law Hub
By the end of 2016, over 1,000 HR professionals, consultants and employment lawyers subscribed to the 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. 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. Try it for yourself today with a 30-day, no-obligation free trial.

Why choose us
- We specialise in workplace compliance training. We were founded by a specialist employment law barrister in 1998. When we first started out, we trained HR professionals in employment law and workplace compliance issues, and years later, we haven't changed.
- We're local. In Northern Ireland, you hear much of what's happening in Great Britain, but this information doesn't apply to Northern Ireland employment law. We cut out the noise to give you clear, accurate information every time.
- We're independent. We don't employ any trainer ourselves, and there's a great reason for this. It leave us free to approach the leading authorities on each topic, so our customers only hear from the very best that Northern Ireland has to offer. Over the years, we've built strong relationships with leading workplace compliance experts, barristers, solicitors and judges.
