Crime and Punishment

Crime and Punishment

Welcome

The Crime and Punishment research group aims to promote research in areas such as criminal law and theory, criminology and penology, evidence and procedure. It aims to foster interdisciplinary collaboration within Trinity and beyond. It aims to reach out to legal practice, NGOs and policy-makers working on criminal justice and penal reform. The group employs a range of doctrinal, theoretical and empirical research methodologies.

These interests correlate with Trinity College’s research themes of Inclusive Society; International Integration; Making Ireland; Genes and Society; Neuroscience; Ageing; and Identities in Transformation.

Assistant Professor, Law

Biography

Dr David Kenny is an Assistant Professor of Law in the Law School, teaching Irish and comparative constitutional law, conflict of laws, critical legal theory and law and literature. He is a graduate of Trinity College Dublin, Harvard Law School, and the Honourable Society of the King's Inns, and is a alumnus of the US State Department's Fulbright programme.

Dr Kenny's research specialises in Irish and comparative constitutional law. He is co-author of the recent 5th edition of Kelly: the Irish Constitution, the leading text on Irish Constitutional Law, as well as many peer-reviewed articles in leading national and international journals on topics such as proportionality, constitutional silence, referendums, and executive branch legal advisors. His current research projects focus on critical accounts of comparative constitutional law methodology, constitutional culture, and referendums, as well as on constitutional implications of Brexit for Ireland. He also writes in the field of law and literature.

Dr Kenny has given expert evidence on constitutional issues to the Citizen's Assembly, the Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Eighth Amendment, the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice and Defence, the Oireachtas Special Covid-19 Committee, and the Northern Ireland Assembly Ad Hoc Committee on a Bill of Rights for Northern Ireland. He is currently a member of the Working Group on Unification Referendums on the Island of Ireland, convened by the Constitution Unit of University College London and supported by funding from the British Academy and the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust. He is coordinator of the State Governance section of the Trinity College Dublin Covid-19 Legal Observatory.

Dr Kenny teaches Constitutional Law I to first year students; Critical Perspectives on Law and Conflict of Laws to fourth years students; and leads a final year dissertation research group on law and literature. He has previously taught advanced constitutional law module to fourth year undergraduates and Masters students. He was a recipient of the Provost's Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2015.

He also has two PhD students awaiting examination: Mr James Rooney, whose thesis explored judicial attitudes to social and economic rights, and Mr Conor Casey, who examined theories of executive power.

Dr Kenny regularly contributed to media discussion of constitutional issues, referendums, and Brexit, having written articles in the Irish Times, the Irish Independent and theJournal.ie, and appearing on Morning Ireland, Marion Finucane, the Six One News, Prime Time, and Sky News. He is open to media queries on matters of Irish or international constitutional law.

Biography

Professor Mary Rogan's research interests include prison law, human rights and imprisonment, and penal policymaking. Professor Rogan received a first class honours degree in Law from Trinity College Dublin in 2003 before going on to obtain a BCL from the University of Oxford. Professor Rogan received her PhD at Trinity College Dublin for her work on the penal policymaking process. She is a barrister with expertise in prison law, receiving the degree of Barrister-at-Law from the Honorable Society of King's Inns with distinction. She is also a Member of Lincoln's Inn and the Bar of England and Wales. Prof. Rogan holds an MA in Higher Education from Dublin Institute of Technology and a Postgraduate Diploma in Statistics from Trinity College Dublin.

Professor Rogan was awarded a European Research Council Starting Grant worth €1.5million euro in 2015 for a project entitled 'Prisons: the rule of law, accountability and rights'. This work brings together, for the first time, the disciplines of public law and the sociology of punishment to examine inspection, oversight and accountability in prison systems in the United States and Europe. Professor Rogan has also received funding from the European Commission and Irish Research Council for cross-jurisdictional projects on imprisonment, and pre-trial detention, and for work on law and social change. She has led research on bail and pre-trial detention in Ireland as part of research examining seven European Union countries, and a further project examining leadership in penal change in the United States and Europe. She has also provided research consultancy to the Council of Europe on projects concerning the inspection of prisons in Ukraine and FYRO Macedonia. She is the Book Review Editor for the Howard Journal of Crime and Justice and a member of the Research Advisory Group to the Howard League for Penal Reform.

Professor Rogan teaches modules in Penology and the Prison System at Trinity College Dublin and is the coordinator of the Undergraduate Dissertation Programme at the School of Law. She has pioneered community-based learning methods in legal education, having introduced the first community-based learning module partnering with nongovernmental organisations on penal policy, and supervised the first Employment-Based PhD student researching penal policy to work with a nongovernmental organisation.

Professor Rogan is committed to using research to improve penal policy and the policymaking process. She chairs the Implementation and Oversight Group on reforms to penal policy, reporting to the Minister for Justice and Equality. She was appointed to the inaugural Research Advisory Group for the Department of Justice and Equality in July 2018. She sits on the Advisory Group to the Office of the Inspector of Prisons. She has also been a member of the Central Statistics Office's Expert Group on Crime Statistics. Professor Rogan is a representative of Ireland on the International Penal and Penitentiary Foundation, a body with advisory status to the United Nations. She is a member of the Board of the Irish Association for the Social Integration of Offenders, the Victims' Rights Alliance, and is a former Chairperson of the Irish Penal Reform Trust.

Research Expertise

Projects

  • Title
    • Prisons: the rule of law, accountability and rights
  • Summary
    • This project aims: 1. To find out whether 'accountability' is a distinctive norm of the European legal system, and what European prison law and policy requires regarding the oversight and monitoring of prisons; 2. To find out how accountability is experienced by prisoners, prison staff and staff of bodies such as Ombudsmen, inspectors, and bodies which deal with complaints; 3. To create a typology of accountability bodies in European prison systems, and examine the relationship between the presence of such bodies and other indicators of prison regimes. Dr. Rogan will lead a team of three postdoctoral researchers, two PhD students, an MPhil student and a research assistant to carry out the work.
