Brehon Law

Under this law, anyone who insulted or assaulted a student was guilty of insult or assault to the teacher. It was, therefore, to the teacher that a fine was paid. It was also the law that a student pay to their teacher the first fee earned by them when they got a job after education. Even though the mass of the people was not educated, all, including women, who desired an education could get one under the law.
