The Legal Services Bill

The Legal Services Bill and the Irish legal system

This week a heavily amended version of the Legal Services Bill passed in the Senate, diluting some key reforms demanded by the IMF and initially proposed by Alan Shatter.  

How did they do it? And over time have lawyers been good or bad for society?

Joining us this week,

Former Minister for Justice, Alan Shatter. 

Minister for Justice, Frances Fitzgerald.

Darren Lehane, Barrister.

David Langwalner, barrister and head of the Irish Innocene Project.

Kieran Allen, a lecturer in sociology in UCD.
