Congratulations to Dr Laura Cahillane, Editor of the Irish Judicial Studies Journal, and to the rest of the editorial team in the School of law, on the publication of the Autumn/Winter edition of the Irish Judicial Studies Journal.

The Journal is a peer-reviewed legal publication interfacing between the judges, legal practitioners, and academics. It is published under the auspices of the Office of the Chief Justice of Ireland.

While the primary purpose of the Journal is to provide Irish judges with analyses and opinions pertinent to their work, it also provides a platform for all judges, practitioners and academics to engage in dialogue on legal issues. It is also the highest-ranked Irish legal publication on SCOPUS.

The latest edition of the journal features articles from both early-career and established academics and practitioners and looks at issues including constitutional property rights, environmental rights, planning law, the socio-economic background of the Supreme Court, customary international law, and facility dogs in courtrooms.
