UCD events to mark 'a century of courts'

UCD Sutherland School of Law is hosting a full day of events to mark the centenary of the establishment of the modern Irish courts system.

The conference, guided tours, exhibition and musical performance on Friday 12 April 2024 will mark exactly 100 years since the Courts of Justice Act 1924 was signed into law on 12 April 1924.

Suitably, the events will take place at Dublin Castle, the venue of the first sittings of the new courts.

The initiative involves collaboration between the Courts Service, UCD, the Irish Legal History Society, An Post, Four Courts Press, the OPW, academics and the judiciary.

Speakers at the conference will include academics from across the island, as well as members of the judiciary.

The event is free of charge, but booking through Eventbrite is essential.
