The Chief Justice Frank Clarke (pictured) will deliver the keynote address at an online seminar on judicial education and training later this month.
The seminar – ‘Judicial Conduct in Ireland: A Framework Fit for Purpose?’ – takes place on Friday, 22 October from 10am to 5pm.
The event is being organised by the Irish Council for Civil Liberties, the Whitaker Institute and School of Law, NUI Galway, and the School of Law at the University of Limerick.
The first session will feature a discussion on ‘Judicial Conduct and Ethics in Ireland: The Context’, chaired by Dr Rónán Kennedy (small picture).
The second session focuses on how issues linked to judicial conduct and ethics are handled in other countries.
The afternoon programme includes a session on the definition of judicial misconduct, and a discussion on investigating complaints.
Registration for the event is now open.
