McKenna new chair of Irish Society for European Law

Matheson EU competition and regulatory law group partner Kate McKenna has been elected as chair of the  Irish Society for European Law (ISEL). 

Established in 1973 on Ireland’s entry to the EU,  ISEL is an association of practising and academic lawyers that promotes the study and practice of European law in Ireland.

McKenna, who will serve a two-year term as chair, has been a member of ISEL for over 10 years, and has featured as a speaker and panellist. 

She succeeds barrister and law lecturer Dr Aoife Beirne BL.

Twin challenges

She said: “With the twin challenges of Brexit and a global pandemic, promoting awareness of European law and Ireland’s new place in Europe assists all organisations in navigating a complex environment. 

“I am looking forward to working with my ISEL colleagues to continue its good work.”

ISEL is the publisher of the Irish Journal of European Law (IJEL), and it prepares and disseminates papers for the Fédération Internationale de Droit Européen (FIDE), of which it is the Irish affiliated member. 

FIDE is the leading international organisation dedicated to the research and analysis of European law, and its interaction with the national laws of member states.
