UCD School of Law was delighted to welcome The Right Honourable The Lord Hutton to launch the Tenth Volume of the UCD Law Review on Thursday evening, November 4. Lord Hutton was joined by members of the Irish judiciary, including Justice Donal O’Donnell (who wrote the foreword to the Review), Justice Declan Budd, Justice Michael Peart and Justice Ronan Keane, in celebrating the success of this student edited journal.
Also present on the night, in addition to faculty, board members, authors and students, were five former Law Review Editors, many of whom are now established academics themselves at institutions that include UL, DCU and Queens. In his address, Lord Hutton praised the standard of writing and the spectrum of topics covered by the journal, which included articles on the free movement of students in the EU, forensic evidence and DNA databases, and crime prevention through environmental design. His Lordship also lauded the close working relationship that existed between Faculty advisors to the Review and the student editors and which played such a vital role in the success of the publication. The Maples and Calder Award for Outstanding Article, which was presented by managing partner Andrew Doyle, went to Ronan Condon for his extrapolation of the law relating to vicarious liability. Addressing the audience on behalf of the Editorial Board, Ian Dalton, Deputy Editor, thanked Arthur Cox Solicitors, the Review’s long-time principal sponsor, for its support and encouragement and he looked forward to the next decade of scholarship ahead.
