First awarded in 2018, the Hibernian Law Medals seek to recognise individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of justice, integrity of the rule of law, independence of the judiciary and the legal professions, and/or public access to and understanding of the legal system – whether in Ireland or in a comparable jurisdiction.
Recipients include the former Chief Justice Mrs Justice Susan Denham, former Irish President Mary McAleese, and British judge Lord Neuberger.
