Winners announced at 28th annual Justice Media Awards

The Belfast rape trial, Cervical Check scandal and the mental health law among the key topics across more than 220 entries.

The Law Society of Ireland has this afternoon (Thursday 27 June 2019) announced the winners of the annual Justice Media Awards, the longest continuously-running media awards in the country.

The top prize was awarded to BBC Northern Ireland, for their Spotlight investigation, When is Sex Rape?

120 of Ireland’s leading journalists gathered at the Law Society of Ireland’s historic headquarters at Blackhall Place, Dublin 7, with 35 awards and merits presented to the deserving winners.

“We believe it is hugely important to recognise and reward excellence in legal journalism,” said President of the Law Society of Ireland Patrick Dorgan.

“The Justice Media Awards are the pride of the Law Society. Journalism that promotes a greater public understanding of the law, the legal system and specific legal issues is of immeasurable value and this year’s awards recognise some fine examples.”
