Taking a Stand for Equality

06/05/2015

The Law Society has made a public statement in support of the 22 May Marriage Referendum.

Ken Murphy, the Director General of the Law Society, said, “At its April meeting the Council of the Law Society considered a position paper on the ‘Marriage Equality Referendum’ from the Society’s Human Rights Committee. The Council decided, by 22 votes to 9, that this was an issue of equality and human rights on which the Society should take a public position. Given that the decision to support a ‘yes’ position was so overwhelming in the discussions at Council, no further vote was needed.”
