The Vocational Panels are one of three methods by which members are elected to Seanad Éireann, the upper house of the Oireachtas (parliament) of Ireland.
The composition of Seanad Éireann is defined in outline by Article 18 of the Constitution of Ireland, which provides for 11 appointees of the Taoiseach, 6 senators elected by the universities, and 43 senators elected by 5 vocational panels.
The composition of each panel and procedures for the election are laid down by the Seanad Electoral (Panel Members) Act, 1947.
