Hibernian Law Journal’s 20th volume is out now

The Hibernian Law Journal has published its 20th volume in virtual format.

The edition is now available online through HeinOnline and Westlaw. 

Volume 20 articles include subjects such as:

  • Impact of the pandemic on the courts,
  • Examinership process and insurance claims,
  • Historical overview of the Revenue Commissioners as preferential creditors,
  • Constitutional concepts of sovereignty.

In his foreword, Mr Justice Michael Twomey writes: “Each contribution in this year’s volume of the Hibernian Law Journal brings a unique and fascinating insight into a diverse area of law.


“Immense credit is due to the authors and the editorial board for bringing this journal to publication, and their hard work and dedication in this regard is to be commended.”

Editor-in-chief Matthew Gregg said: “It is my sincere wish that the readers enjoy the contributions in this volume as much as we enjoyed working with the authors to bring them to publication.”

Hans Fischer-Kerrane was awarded best overall contribution for his article ‘The Curious Case of Arthur Celmer’. 

It analyses various Irish and European judgments in the context of Celmer’s protracted proceedings resisting extradition under the European Arrest Warrant system.

Best trainee contribution

Best trainee contribution, sponsored by the Law Society, was awarded to Joshua Kieran Glennon, a trainee with McCann FitzGerald LLP, for ‘First Among Equals: The Revenue Commissioners as Preferential Creditors in Corporate Insolvency’.

Volume 20 also includes book reviews of the latest editions of Charleton & McDermott’s Criminal Law and Evidence, and Wylie on Irish Land Law, together with the speeches delivered at the journal’s annual lecture on the challenges of regulating online disinformation.

Gregg expressed sincere thanks to the Law Society, and other supporters, including:

  • Judge-in-residence Mr Justice Twomey,
  • TP Kennedy (editorial advisor and Blackhall Place director of education),
  • Academic reviewers,
  • Publishers Thomson Reuters,
  • Benefactors from the Inner Bar ,
  • Sponsor firms Arthur Cox LLP, Matheson, and McCann FitzGerald LLP.
