Law on Trial

Oct 3, 2023

In the first episode of season four of Law on Trial, Sara Phelan, chairwoman of the Bar Council, discusses why the representative body has recommended a historical one-day withdrawal of services by its criminal barrister members.

Hosts Catherine Sanz and James McDermott also chat with Niamh Howlin, associate professor of law at UCD, about her new book Barristers in Ireland, which sheds light on the inner workings of the profession in the 20th century.

The hosts also examine some legal stories in the news and a recent judgment from the High Court.
