Law Research Centre

2021/2022 Seminars

Events - Academic Year 2021/2022


The Law Research Centre at the School of Law & Government, DCU, organizes regular seminars to engage with relevant developments across all fields of law. In the academic years 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20, the Law Research Centre hosted weekly seminars with a single speaker throughout both terms. Since the explosion of the Covid-19 pandemic and related disruptions, in the academic years 2020/21 and 2021/22 the Law Research Centre has scheduled a set of annual workshops with multiple speakers. In particular, in the current academic year, the Law Research Centre endeavours to look at "Law after" major events, exploring the impact of important developments, such as Brexit, the COP26 and the Afghan war, on key areas of law, including data protection law, environmental law and international human rights law. This reflects also the key research clusters within the Law Research Centre.
