has been edited by members of the UCD

reviewed articles within the broad categories of modern and
historical jurisprudence as well as shorter comments, case notes
and book reviews.
Irish Jurist is committed to
publishing material that meets high standards of legal scholarship
and to fostering a critical approach to the study and practice of
law. The journal is
widely read by academics, judges and legal practitioners in
Ireland and has a substantial international subscription list.
The Irish Jurist is published twice a year, in Spring and
Winter, and is available in hard copy and electronically.
