First Lecture of Hardiman Series 2024

On 11 June, the first instalment in this year's Hardiman Lecture Series took place in the Supreme Court.

The lecture, which was chaired by Mr Justice Gerard Hogan of the Supreme Court, involved an engaging discussion with Orla O'Donnell, Legal Affairs Correspondent for RTÉ News, and Mary Carolan, Legal Affairs Correspondent for The Irish Times, on 'the legal challenges facing journalism today'. 

The Hardiman Lecture Series was named in honour of the late Mr Justice Adrian Hardiman following his sudden passing in 2016. Mr Justice Hardiman had been a series participant every year since its inception in 2013 alongside the establishment of the Chief Justice's Summer Placement Programme for Law Students under the Chief Justiceship of Ms Justice Susan Denham.
