Abstract and speaker biography

Mairead Enright was a co-director of the Northern/Irish Feminist Judgments Project. She has also worked on feminist legislative drafting, and is beginning a new project in Ireland on feminist constitutional practice. In this session, she will provide a critical introduction to feminist judging as a method, reflecting on the challenges faced by academic and non-academic participants in the Irish project. She will consider how recent feminist judgments projects across the common law world have developed innovative approaches to the challenges of feminist judging, and look to possible future uses of the method. Drawing on the experience of 'women's courts' she will argue that scholars must pay attention to the ceremonies and communities that shape law-making, as well as to the craft of producing text. The discussion will touch on the UK Supreme Court's decision in Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission's Application for Judicial Review [2018] UKSC 27.

This lecture is free to attend and refreshments will be provided.

Pre-registration is mandatory, so if you are planning to come along please sign up.
