The IASW is NOW providing Fitness to Practise Legal Expenses cover FREE to the 'working' membership categories; Full-Time, Part-Time (20hrs or less), 1st Year Post and 2nd Year Post Qualify members.

The IASW Fitness to Practise Policy Offers the Following: 

The IASW Master policy for Fitness to Practise includes a certificate of insurance that each member will receive individually from our insurance provider, Glennon Insurance.  

The IASW is offering a superior insurance coverage, summarised as follows – 

  • The IASW policy is a legal contract that is binding and enforceable in a court of law, the same as any other insurance policy.
  • We specify the amount the insurance provider is prepared to make available to a member to defend a FTP situation.
  • The IASW policy is per member on an individual basis. Most importantly each member has a ring fenced legal expenses limit of €250,000 that is unique to them and is not being provided on a discretionary basis.
  • IASW insurers are also very experienced in this area both here in Ireland and in the UK.  



A) IASW provides members in the 'working' categories with Fitness to Practise Legal Expenses insurance. This insurance will only respond to matters initiated by CORU that have occurred after the inception date of the insurance. Any matters that arose prior to the IASW initial membership date i.e. the date you joined are not insured under this facility. 

B) The Fitness to Practise Legal Expenses insurance that IASW have purchased on behalf of members only covers current IASW members. An individual has to be a member of IASW at the time that a CORU process commences. If membership is cancelled or lapsed then the individual concerned no longer has the benefit of the this important insurance
