About the Journal

Welcome to the Judicial Studies Institute Journal

The Judicial Studies Institute Journal (JSI Journal) is a learned legal publication aimed at the Irish judiciary. It is produced under the aegis of the Judicial Studies Institute, a body established pursuant to section 19 of the Court and Court Officers Act, 1995 to organise training, seminars and study visits for the judiciary. The primary purpose of the JSI Journal is to provide Irish judges with information and opinions that are relevant and useful to them in their work.

The latest edition of the JSI Journal, 2010 No. 2, features articles by Judges, legal academics and practitioners on a diverse range of subjects.

The Editorial Board and I wish to thank all those who contributed to this edition and hope that you, the reader, find this an interesting and informative edition of the JSI Journal.

We also encourage Judges, members of the legal community and non-lawyers to submit responses, articles and book reviews for publication in future editions, or to contact us with feedback or questions regarding the Journal.

The main deadline for submissions for the next edition is 1st November 2011, though late submission may sometimes be possible by special arrangement. For more information on submissions, please go to the Submissions section. I am always happy to discuss possible submissions - contact me at editor@jsijournal.ie.

General Editor

A recent change was made to the numbering of each edition of the Journal. Formerly identified by its volume and edition number, and volume year (e.g. Vol. 6 No. 1 2006), each edition is now identified solely by the year of its publication and a number denoting the order in which it was published that year. The current edition was therefore 2010 No. 2, while the next, is 2011 No. 1, and so on.

This also means a slight change to citation of the Journal. This edition should be cited as [2010] 2 Judicial Studies Institute Journal.
