The King's Inns has introduced a fingerprint system called TruancyGuard in an effort to ensure that trainee barristers turn up to lectures.
The body, which organises and regulates the training of all barristers in Ireland, began trials of the new biometric system last week.
If successful, the technology will be rolled out to all students, according to Sarah McDonald, dean of King's Inns.
