Vulnerable Adults and the Law

Vulnerable Adults and the Law Seminar 2

The School of Law at the University of Limerick hosted a special evening seminar entitled ‘Vulnerable Adults and the Law’ this week. The objective of the seminar was to explore the invisible challenges that vulnerable members of society face when confronted with modern criminal justice systems.

The keynote speaker for the event was Mr Dean Strang, Attorney-of-Law, who is best known for his involvement in the Netflix series, ‘Making A Murderer’. Mr Strang was joined on the night by Dr Alan Cusack of the School of Law at the University of Limerick and Dr Gill Harold of School of Applied Social Sciences, University College Cork. The proceedings were chaired by Adjunct Professor, his Honour, Judge Thomas E. O’Donnell who led a very engaging Questions and Answers session following the three presentations.

The event was co-ordinated by Dr Alan Cusack of the School of Law and was hosted by the Centre for Crime, Justice and Victim Studies (CCJVS) at the University of Limerick.

The School of Law would like to thank everyone who attended Monday evening’s event for contributing to a very engaging and enjoyable evening of discussion.
