Supreme Court judge among UCC appointments

UCC’s School of Law has appointed three new adjunct professors for three-year terms, beginning in the first semester of the current academic year.

Ms Justice Marie Baker (pictured), Emily Logan and John Gaffney will take up their terms this month.

Ms Justice Baker, a graduate of UCC and King's Inns, was appointed a judge of the Supreme Court in 2019.

Having been called to the Bar in 1984, and the Inner Bar in 2004, she was appointed to the High Court in 2014, and to the Court of Appeal in 2018.

Logan first to hold children’s post

Emily Logan was appointed a commissioner of the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) in February of this year, having previously been Chief Commissioner of the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission from 2014 to 2019.

Before that, she was Ireland’s first Ombudsman for Children, holding the post for more than ten years until 2014.

John Gaffney is a leading arbitration practitioner, who was appointed to lead corporate-law firm Al Tamimi & Co’s international arbitration practice in Abu Dhabi in 2014.

He is a graduate of UCC and the University of Amsterdam, and has served as a member of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Commission on Arbitration and ADR since 2018.

“All are eminent and distinguished in their various fields and will make a tremendous, tangible contribution to the school, inspiring students as role models through their diverse careers, achievements and leadership,” said Prof Mark Poustie (Dean of the School of Law).
