On Wednesday, 21 February 2018, the School of Law at the University of Limerick hosted an evening CPD seminar entitled ‘Towards Compliance with the UNCRPD: The Role of Criminal Justice Professionals’. The event was co-ordinated by Dr Alan Cusack of the School of Law and co-hosted by the Centre for Crime, Justice and Victim Studies (CCJVS) and the Irish Criminal Justice and Disability Network (ICJDN).
Three engaging papers were presented on the night by Dr Alan Cusack (University of Limerick), Dr Gillian McNamee (ICJDN) and Mr Brian McDonald (Ability West). Each of the papers explored the implications which Ireland’s expected ratification of the UNCRPD will pose for criminal justice professionals. Dr Susan Leahy of the School of Law chaired the seminar and led a very Questions and Answers session.
Following the success of the Limerick seminar, a similar event is now scheduled to take in Criminal Courts of Justice in Dublin on Thursday, 12 April.
The School of Law would like to thank everyone who attended Wednesday evening’s event for contributing to a very engaging and enjoyable evening of discussion.
