CPD at Bow Street to aid homeless in Dublin

A ‘Lawyers Against Homelessness’ CPD event will take place on Thursday, 11 July, at the Capuchin Day Centre, 29 Bow Street, Dublin 7.

Four CPD points will accrue from attendance and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Capuchin Day Centre for Homeless People.

The event will run from 3.30-7.30pm and speakers include:

  • Mr Justice Seamus Noonan, Judge of the Court of Appeal,
  • Ms Justice Niamh Hyland, Judge of the High Court,
  • Joe O’Malley (partner, Hayes Solicitors),

  • Feichín McDonagh SC,
  • Shane Murphy SC,
  • Nouchka Lotefa BL,
  • Ciara Hughes (Ferry Solicitors).

Topics include personal injury and commercial law.

This is the 13th CPD event run by ‘Lawyers Against Homelessness’, which in total has raised over €385,000, all of which has gone directly to the Capuchin Day Centre.

Suggested donation

The CPD conference fee is €120 (or €60 for practitioners in years one to five).

However, donations of between €500 to €1,000 are suggested and may be made payable to ‘Lawyers Against Homelessness’ or The Capuchin Day Centre, or paid by bank transfer.

Law firms involved include:

The attorney general, members of the judiciary, the Bar Council, the Law Library and many individual members of the Bar have also contributed.

Brother Kevin has now left the Capuchin Day Centre to retire after his many years of service supporting the homeless in Dublin.

His fellow brothers remain utterly committed to helping the increasing number of homeless in Dublin, Lawyers Against Homelessness has said.
