Five thousand legal professionals from around the world have travelled to Dublin for the International Bar Association's Annual Conference.
Former President of Ireland Mary Robinson and Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz are among those due to address the week-long gathering.
Brian Burke, head of corporate and mergers and acquisitions with the Irish law firm William Fry said: "There are delegates who cross all areas of the law from high-end corporate work and transactions to human rights issues, so it covers every area."
