Frank Clarke to receive Hibernian Law Medal

The Hibernian Law Journal is to award its Hibernian Law Medal to the former Chief Justice Mr Justice Frank Clarke (pictured).

The conferral ceremony will be held at the Law Society of Ireland on Wednesday 5 June (6.30pm).

First awarded in 2018, the Hibernian Law Medals seek to recognise individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of justice, the integrity of the rule of law, the 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.


The Chief Justice Donal O’Donnell will chair the conferral ceremony, at which Mr Justice Clarke will deliver an acceptance speech and answer questions from the audience.

Previous medal recipients include former presidents of Ireland Mary Robinson and Mary McAleese, and former President of the British Supreme Court, Baroness Hale of Richmond.

Other awards have gone to Lord Neuberger, and former Chief Justice Mrs Susan Denham.

Those interested in attending can now pre-register.
