The University of Galway Law Review launched its second publication at an event in the Harbour Hotel on 17 October.
The event was attended by two judges of the High Court, members of the University of Galway School of Law, and students of the University.
Speaking at the launch, Mr. Tom O’Malley SC said, “When you read the articles in this journal, I think one of the things that comes through is that the authors are writing about topics not just that they are interested in but more importantly that they actually care about.”
The Hon. Mr Justice Rory Mulcahy of the High Court regarded that “the thoughtful analysis contained within this journal is in my view a credit to the authors and it’s also a credit to the editorial team.”
Volume II of the University of Galway Law Review was co-edited by Róisín Elizabeth Cowan and Rhiannon Mulcaire. Welcoming the launch of the journal, Cowan said that “the crafting of a law review requires a great deal of love and passion for what you are doing.”
She thanked the publication’s sponsor, William Fry, for its “generous support,” and all of the contributors and editors who were involved in the second volume of the law review.
Two final year law and human rights students, Emma Halpin and Tom O’Connor, were appointed as co-editors-in-chief of Volume III of the University of Galway Law Review.
Ms. Halpin described the launch event as “an enjoyable evening with many interesting contributions” and said that preparations for the next edition are well underway.
Volume II of the University of Galway Law Review is available online at on the Law Review Website.
The theme of Volume III of the University of Galway Law Review is ‘Progression or Regression: Navigating an Uncertain Legal Landscape’ for which articles of 5,000 words or more are invited until Spring 2024. Those interested in submitting an article or learning more can email email@example.com.
