Thursday, 12 April 2018
On Thursday, 12 April 2018, the Bar Council of Ireland hosted an evening CPD seminar in the Central Criminal Court in Dublin, entitled ‘Towards Compliance with the UNCRPD: The Role of Criminal Justice Professionals’. The event was co-ordinated by Dr. Alan Cusack of the School of Law and it was co-hosted by the Centre for Crime, Justice and Victim Studies (CCJVS) and the Irish Criminal Justice and Disability Network (ICJDN).
Four engaging papers were presented on the night by Professor Shane Kilcommins (University of Limerick), Dr. Alan Cusack (University of Limerick), Dr. Gillian McNamee (ICJDN) and Mr. Brian McDonald (Behaviour Support Specialist). Each of the papers explored the implications which Ireland’s expected ratification of the UNCRPD will pose for criminal justice professionals. Damien Colgan SC of the Bar Council of Ireland chaired the seminar.
The School of Law would like to thank everyone who attended the event for contributing to a very engaging and enjoyable evening of discussion.
