Author: Dr Lydia Bracken (School of Law, University of Limerick)

Child Law in Ireland provides an accessible analysis of the Irish child law system. It incorporates examination of Ireland’s international obligations in this area arising under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), as well as examination of the Irish Constitution and the domestic legislative framework. The book addresses a wide range of child law topics including children’s rights; parentage; donor-assisted human reproduction and surrogacy; guardianship, custody and access; child protection; representation and participation; and education.

Child Law in Ireland examines current Irish law and addresses contemporary issues in a range of areas. This includes discussion of timely legal developments such as the Assisted Reproduction Bill 2017; the Children and Family Relationships Act 2015; the Adoption (Amendment) Act 2017; the Adoption (Information and Tracing) Bill 2016; the Children First Act 2015; and the Education (Admission to Schools) Bill 2016, among others.
