    Hi All, I’d like to notify you on free public conference on the Presumption of Innocence which DIRT is hosting in association with the Law Society of Ireland. The conference will be held on Saturday, 27th November, Room 4027, DIT Aungier Street from 9am-3.30pm.

    The conference aims to provide a space in which to reflect on the impact of recent criminal justice reforms on the presumption and the justifications advanced for them. The conference will be chaired by the Hon. Mr. Justice Adrian Hardiman of the Irish Supreme Court and will also be addressed by several other national and international experts in this field.

    These include: Dr. Mary Rogan, DIT; Dr. Claire Hamilton, DIT; Jimmy Martin, Department of Justice; David Langwallner BL, GCD, Innocent Project Ireland; Paul Anthony McDermott BL; ‘Sunny’ Jacobs and Peter
    Pringle; Niamh Gunn; Prof. William Schabas, UCG; and Dr. Michael Naughton, Bristol University, Innocence Network, UK. Topics include ‘The innocence rights of sentenced offenders’, ‘Why a presumption of guilt may reduce the possibility of wrongful conviction’ and ‘The
    Presumption of Innocence in International Criminal Tribunals’.
