A short lecture series from the Law Library will explore the intersection between law, history and literature.
The Bar of Ireland’s Green Street Lecture Series will start on 22 April and seeks to build an understanding of how national figures have both been shaped by, and have shaped the law in Ireland.
The lecture series will feature talks on a range of luminaries from Irish legal history.
Revisiting landmark cases and their lasting impact, the lectures will be delivered by some of Ireland’s most prominent legal figures.
The three lectures will be delivered by pre-eminent barristers passionate about their respective themes.
