All are welcome, particularly those with a research interest in private law, Unjust Enrichment and Restitution.
Dr Niamh Connolly is a lecturer at University College London, where she moved from Trinity College Dublin in 2016. Her principal research and teaching interest is in unjust enrichment law. She is interested in how Irish private law compares to that of England and Wales, and in differences in legal culture that affect the substantive law in these jurisdictions. Her paper will seek to interpret the sparse Irish case law on unjust enrichment in light of this wider question about the specificity of Irish law. In particular, Niamh will ask whether Irish legal culture is less formalist than that of England and Wales, and if so, how that affects Irish restitution law. Niamh hopes that the seminar will provide an opportunity to hear the views of other Irish jurists as to the possible distinctiveness of Irish judicial approaches in private law.
The Private Law Discussion Group is a Research group of the TCD Law School, which invites collaboration and engagement nationally and internationally on private law, including property law, tort, contract, and unjust enrichment.
