Hibernian Law Journal in call for submissions

The Hibernian Law Journal has called for submissions for publication in Volume 22.

The journal, under the patronage of the Law Society, offers a platform for trainees, practicing solicitors, barristers, students and early career academics to contribute to Irish legal discourse.

Articles discussing European or international law or other common law jurisdictions, where they are relevant in an Irish context, are particularly welcomed.

Submissions should be between 5,000 and 15,000 words and emailed to editor@hibernianlawjournal.com before 20 January next year. Volume 22 is expected to be published in summer 2023.


An annual prize, chosen by judge-in-residence Mr Justice Michael Quinn, goes to the best article and a separate Law Society prize goes to the best submission by a trainee solicitor.

The Journal is edited by trainee and newly-qualified solicitors and sponsored by firms McCann FitzGerald LLP, Matheson LLP, Eversheds Sutherland LLP and William Fry LLP.

Blackhall Place Law School director TP Kennedy is on the editorial board while McCann FitzGerald trainee Joshua Kieran-Glennon is editor-in-chief for Volume 22.

Deputy editor is Denis O’Farrell while other editorial committee members include:

  • Alice Kearns,
  • Ciara Dinneny,
