The School of Law recently hosted a CPD Seminar on International Criminal Law for local practitioners.
Dr Noelle Higgins (Senior Lecturer, Maynooth University), Dr Amina Adanan (Lecturer in Law, Maynooth University) and Professor Katie Boyle (Associate Professor in International Human Rights, University of Stirling) presented papers on procedural and evidential issues before the International Criminal Court at The Hague and discussed Ireland’s responsibilities and obligations under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. The seminar was organised by Dr Ger Coffey (Lecturer in Law and Course Director of the LLM/MA in Human Rights in Criminal Justice) and funded by the Centre for Crime, Justice & Victim Studies and the School of Law. Practitioners benefited greatly from the extensive knowledge and expertise of the guest speakers and the exchange of ideas that followed during a question and answer session.
