Law Research Centre

2022/2023 Seminars

Events - Academic Year 2022/2023


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, 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 aims to present ground-breaking research monographs written by its members and beyond. These works are discussed by world renowned speakers and contextualised in light of the major societal challenges we are living through, from the digital revolution to the war and the energetic crisis, also in light of the key themes of the research clusters constituting the Law Research Centre.
