Hardiman summer lecture series goes online for 2020

Chief Justice Frank Clarke’s summer placement programme for 30 law students kicked off this week with participants from Ireland, Wales and the US.

Eight third-level institutions participated for the first time, including Institutes of Technology, Technological University Dublin and other colleges that deliver an undergraduate third-level law degree. 

A key element of each year's internship programme is the Hardiman Lecture Series, curated by Mr Justice Peter Charleton.


The lecture series is held in honour of the late Supreme Court Justice Adrian Hardiman, who participated as a speaker in a previous series. 

This year's lectures are being delivered remotely via Zoom. 

Tomorrow, Friday 18 June, the topic is ‘Maria Edgeworth, Castle Rackrent and The Law’, delivered by Justice Max Barrett at 3pm.

John O’Donnell SC will speak on the 1979 Fastnet disaster Tuesday 23 June at 3pm.

And on Thursday 25 June, at 3pm, four icons of 20th century law will be compared and contrasted by Advocate General Gerard Hogan when he speaks about Homes and Harlan, Atkin and Denning.
