Aoife qualified as a barrister in 2007 and achieved certification with the Mediators Institute of Ireland in 2013. She co-mediates in the areas of family, employment and commercial disputes and is trained in conducting workplace investigations. She is interested in resolving the issues at the core of a dispute outside of the adversarial legal system where possible due to the significant costs, time and exacerbation of conflict involved. She has recently undertaken further training in psychology at Trinity College Dublin to better understand the psychological factors operating in conflict dynamics. She also has an interest in restorative justice and voluntarily assisted Mr Justice Quirke during this process at the Magdalen Commission in 2013.
