Student Law Reviews at TCD and UCC
The latest edition of the Cork Online Law Review is now available (free) here and features a number of interesting articles by undergraduate and postgraduate law students from Ireland and abroad. Articles likely to be of interest to our readers include:
- Alternatives to Traditional Sentencing Methods – The Efficacy and Constitutionality of Periodic Imprisonment in South Africa
- The Criminal Justice (Surveillance) Act 2009: An Examination of the Compatibility of the New Act with Article 8 of the European Convention of Human Rights
- Balancing Conflicting Interests during Pregnancy: Ultrasound v Reality
- In the Name of the Most Holy Trinity: Religious Anachronisms and the Need for a Secular Constitution
- Designing Climate Change Law: A Comparative Analysis of the U.S. and the E.U.
- Scientific Uncertainty and the Precautionary Principle
- Limiting the Potential for Bystander Apathy: On the Introduction of a Duty to Rescue in International Law
The editors invite submissions for the 10th edition by December 12 2010. I should mention that two of us here at HRinI were on the first editorial board of the Review while many more of us had our first publications in the journal. Although it is terrifying to think that COLR will be 10 years old in no time, it is wonderful to see that the publication has gone from strength to strength.
The latest edition of the Trinity College Law Review, dedicated to the memory of the late Gernot Biehler, was launched in February. Subscription information will be available on the website shortly and articles of interest include:

Student-run law reviews are thriving in Ireland at the moment. NUI Maynooth has established a new one while the next editions of the UCD Law Review (available on HeinOnline), the Hibernian Law Journal (Blackhall Place) and the Irish Student Law Review (King’s Inns) are in the pipeline.
