LAUNCH OF VOLUME 17
The UCD Law Review was delighted to welcome The Hon Mr Justice Frank Clarke as guest of honour at the recent launch of the Fourteenth Volume of the Review. Mr Justice Clarke is a graduate of UCD (BA 1972) and a great friend to the Sutherland School of Law and its many student groups.
Mr Justice Clarke praised the variety and quality of work which the Review had attracted, and the achievement which producing work of its calibre was for the Editorial Board and authors alike. He noted the contribution which such a student run publication can and does make to discussions on the law, from individuals who are beginning their journey through the legal landscape, and the platform which publication provides.

Mr Justice Clarke was joined by Dr Carol Coulter, who penned both an insightful Foreword, and thought-provoking Expert Commentary. This commentary related to her views on the development of the law in the reporting of childcare-centred cases, which draws on her experience as, among others, Director of the Childcare Law Reporting Project. Dean Professor Joseph McMahon was also in attendance, alongside members of faculty, authors, invited guests and previous Review editors.
