Legal Island is a multi-award winning workplace compliance company working across both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. We’re a people-driven company, specialising in workplace compliance. We help HR professionals understand employment law and how it applies to their workplace.
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. Legal-Island's conferences and workshops cover all areas of employment law and culminate in the Annual Review of Employment Law conferences in November each year.

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.

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 GB, but it can be difficult to know what applies here and what doesn't. 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 leaves 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.
Legal Island has won several awards since its inception in 1998, including the Irish News Best Place to Work Award (Small Company). We have also been awarded Gold Star Service Excellence, the EFQM Mark of Excellence and in May 2019 we were awarded Investors in People Platinum.
