Trinity conference on electoral reform

Trinity College Dublin’s School of Law is to host a conference next week on legislation that will introduce significant changes to the electoral process – including an independent Electoral Commission.

The event will examine the functions of the new commission in areas such as constituency review, the monitoring of misinformation and disinformation, political advertising, and referenda.

The conference on the Electoral Reform Act 2022 will take place on Monday 29 January (5pm-7pm) in the Swift Lecture Theatre, Arts Building.

Those interested in attending can register at lawevent@tcd.ie.

  • Ailbhe O'Neill SC (Trinity College Dublin),
  • Catherine Allen (partner, Mason Hayes & Curran),
  • Art O'Leary (CEO, Electoral Commission), and
  • Gary Murphy (School of Law and Government at DCU).
