Podcasting our Feminist Judgments Project

Podcasting our Feminist Judgments Project

At our Drafting Workshops, the academics acting as judges for the project present their draft judgments. They speak about the challenges they have encountered in re-writing the judgments in important Irish and Northern Irish cases, and about their aspirations for the re-written versions. Below are some of the podcasts we have made of their talks so far, together with links to the original judgment in each case. judges’ contact details and additional resources. Academics teaching these cases, or other students of judicial reasoning, are likely to find the discussions useful, and we welcome your feedback. The podcasts are usually about 25 mins long.

The next Drafting workshop is in UCC on February 5 and 6. The programme for the day is here. If you would like to attend, please email irishfeministjudge@gmail.com.  Our final workshop will be held at UCD and Griffith College Dublin in mid April.
