The School of Law is delighted to announce the publication of Justiciability of Human Rights Law in Domestic Jurisdictions by Springer.
The School’s contributing author Michelle Stevenson started her doctoral research in January 2014 under the supervision of Dr. Andrea Ryan and is a member of the Centre for Crime, Justice and Victim Studies. She also lectures the LLM/MA module Comparative International Protection of Human Rights Law and has tutored Constitutional Law 1 and 2.
Michelle’s chapter “DNA Evidence under the Microscope: Why the Presumption of Innocence is Under Threat in Ireland” exposes the dangers of viewing mixed DNA evidence as infallible. The chapter is one of a collection that questions domestic justiciability across a wide range of human rights issues.
Her next publication, “Deconstructing the Presumption of Innocence: Confirming the Threat of Cognitive Bias in Ireland and France” in the book Le Droit Comparé et… (published by Presses Universitaires d’Aix-Marseille), is forthcoming later this month.
