Dr Donal Coffey gave the 2022 Winter Discourse

The 2022 Winter Discourse was given by Dr Donal Coffey (Maynooth University) in late November 2022 at the Law Society of Ireland in Dublin.

The title of his Discourse was ‘Constitutional Theory and Irish Legal Education, 1900-1950’.

The Discourse was attended by one of our patrons, The Hon. Mr. Justice Donal O’Donnell, Chief Justice of Ireland, as well as many members of the judiciary, academics, and lawyers in practice.
A response was given by Dr Niamh Howlin (UCD). The talk stimulated considerable commentary and questions immediately afterwards and discussion was carried on over dinner.

The talk was preceded by a welcome to the Law Society by its President, Maura Derivan. It was preceded by a talk on aspects of Law Society recognition of long service in the profession by former President, Mr James Cahill.
