On July 6, the law school hosted a one-day workshop on 'Law and Gender in Modern Ireland: Critique and Reform'. The event, organised by Dr Lynsey Black (PhD 16’) and Peter Dunne (PhD Candidate in Law) brought together academics from all over Ireland to discuss the current intersections of law, gender and policy. Topics addressed included considerations of gender in sexual offences, progress towards LGBT rights and on-going reforms in domestic violence and surrogacy. The workshop forms part of a wider project, which will culminate in the publication of an edited collection (Hart, 2018). A number of the law school’s faculty, including Professor Ivana Bacik, Dr. Andrea Mulligan and Dr. Alan Brady, are taking part in the project and made presentations at the workshop.
