The foreword for Volume 17 was provided by the Honourable Ms Justice Miriam O’Regan. The launch was attended by Ruth Pollard from Arthur Cox, who have been the sponsor of the Review since its inception in 2001. Staff and students of the Sutherland School of Law, alumni and authors were also in attendance.

Volume 17 contains articles that discuss diverse areas of the law, written by authors from both domestic and international backgrounds. It contains a particularly high number of articles from UCD graduates, which highlights the excellent standard of legal writing and research of the Sutherland School of Law.
