Cases involving excessively lengthy legal proceedings in breach of article 6(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights, have only recently come to light as a problem in the Irish legal system. This problem has itself dogged other European legal systems for a long time. In a recent case, the Irish Supreme Court has for the first time mooted a potential constitutional remedy for this problem. You are cordially invited to attend a lecture presented by Stuart Wallace LLB, LLM (Hons) (NUI)
analysing the compatibility of this new remedy with European standards and the approaches adopted by other jurisdictions to this problem. The lecture will also provide an overview of the Irish legal system and the development of constitutional rights.
The lecture will take place on Thursday, November 26, 2009, 9:30 s.t. in the premises of the Institute. If you wish to attend please register your interest by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
