Department of Law lecturers to appear in fireside chat on recently published books as part of 10th anniversary celebrations

Friday, October 4, 2019 - 16:15

We are delighted to invite you to an upcoming event in the RDS (Merrion Room) in Dublin on Tuesday 22nd October at 17:00. The speakers will include four members of the Maynooth University Department of Law – Dr. Edana Richardson, Alice Harrison, Dr. Lynsey Black and Prof. Claire Hamilton – all of whom have published new books in 2019 (see below for the list of publications).

The event will begin at 17:00 with welcome drinks and canapés, before a panel, starting at 17:45, at which the four speakers will discuss the implications of their recent publications for law, legal education and criminal justice in Ireland and elsewhere. We follow this with a short prize ceremony for our undergraduate students and, finally, a wine reception which will finish at 20:00.

This evening is one of a series of events taking place in October and November as part of our department’s 10th anniversary celebrations. Attendance is free but registration is compulsory. To register, please email
