On Thursday 15th October at 5 p.m. – 7 p.m, Professor Claire Hamilton will present key findings from her research for the Irish Council of Civil Liberties on the impact of the new evidentiary exclusionary rule, arising from the decision in DPP v. J.C.  1 IR 417. The report, entitled 'A Revolution in Principle: Assessing the Impact of the new Exclusionary Rule' addresses key issues such as the application of the new test, the impact on procedural rights and the impact on prosecutorial and police culture.
The seminar on Procedural Rights and Evidence will be held remotely and will include a discussion on evidence gathering procedures, admissibility and remedies for procedural violations in Ireland chaired by Ms. Justice Aileen Donnelly (Judge of the Court of Appeal).
Prof. Hamilton's research was kindly supported by the Irish Research Council's New Foundations scheme.
In this week's Irish Times, Professor Hamilton discusses the problems with the 2015 judgement allowing the use of evidence that has been obtained unconstitutionally. To read more click here.
